TROUBLESHOOTING

10.1 No supported Authentication methods available. 10.1.1

ISSUE: One of our trainees has created one database instance on cloud and after that, he was trying to connect to the instance via Putty (SSH) but was getting below error message. PUTTY Fatal Error: Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey, gssapi-keyex, gssapi-with-mic

10.1.2

CAUSE: SSH CONNECTIVITY ISSUE There could be 2 cause of this issue: 1. Your SSH port 22 is not open from internet in Cloud Firewall 2. SSH Public key you generated was not generated or not uploaded properly while creating the instance (or you are not using Private Key Properly in Putty).

10.1.3

HOW TO CHECK IF SSH PORT 22 IS OPEN In order to find if SSH port 22 is open on Cloud from Internet, use telnet from machine you are connecting. telnet <public IP of Machine> 22

contact@k21academy.com

53


If port is open you should see output like Trying 129.154.72.105… Connected to .129.154.72.105 Escape character is ‘^]’. In our case port 22 was not open across Firewall on Cloud 10.1.4

FIX: 1. For first cause mentioned above, make sure you have opened the SSH port 22. To open the SSH Port 22, create a Security Rule to allow ssh port from Network tab as shown below.

contact@k21academy.com

54


2. For the second (Wrong Certificates or wrong configuration in Putty), Try to avoid copypaste key while creating an instance. Instead of that save and browse the public key file from the saved location.

10.2 Select 2.2 Compute Shape to create a Database Note: If you select compute shape 1.1, you will get below error while creating a database:

So, Please select compute shape 2.2 to successfully creation of DB.

contact@k21academy.com

55


10.3 Credit Card was Declined: While creating Free Oracle Cloud Account Issue: While Creating Cloud Account, if your card get declined & if you are getting Error: Credit Card was Declined

Fix: 1. Try with Visa or MasterCard 2. Check with your Bank: Are payments to US allowed 3. Please contact your credit card company and ask them to allow this transaction and try again. Still, If you get the issue then please contact Oracle Support.
