Adding a new Virtuozzo 4 node to Expand fails with the error:

ACTION OUTPUT ------------- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
<packet version="">
<errtext>[SSH] Authentification failed. Username/PublicKey combination invalid</errtext>


Login to Expand via SSH and copy Expand SSH key to the Virtuozzo hardware node:
# scp /usr/local/expand/etc/.ssh/ root@virtuozo_node_ip:/root/

Login to the Virtuozzo hardware node via SSH and add Expand SSH key ( to to authorized_keys2 in the Service Container (container with ID 1):
# cat >> /vz/private/1/root/home/vzagent0/.ssh/authorized_keys2

Try to add the Virtuozzo node to Expand.

Note, this issue will be fixed in Expand 2.3.
