SSHD error: Received disconnect


after installing openssh 6.2p1-1 I get a lot of error messages within my systems journal.

All errors are similar to this, IP addresses and PIDs vary of course.

sshd[83236]: error: Received disconnect from 11: Normal Shutdown. Thank you!
sshd[83349]: error: Received disconnect from 11: disconnected by user

Since ssh works perfectly fine and it seems not too uncommon to me that users are disconnecting from time to time, I don't see the point why they are classified as priority 3 error messages. Is it a bug or is there some problem with my system?

Thank you! smile

Re: SSHD error: Received disconnect

I double this. I'm also surprised that noone else noticed this issue...

So far, all I can say is that when running sshd.service with "-Dddd" the disconnect messages are recorded using the usual facility, not auth.err. However, systemd then complains that sshd exited with error code 255, so sshd.service enters 'failed' state

pkill -9 systemd

Re: SSHD error: Received disconnect

I'm surprised as well - maybe we're the only ones looking at our logs. smile

This looks like an upstream bug introduced by a new "feature"
