Could not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key

November 9th, 2014 | by admin |

if you get error message : ‘Could not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key’ when restarting ssh, after an upgrade from FreeBSD 8.x to 9.x

You need to create new ecdsa key with following command

#ssh-keygen -t ecdsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key -N

then you should restart the sshd service

#/etc/rc.d/sshd restart
