    Ran into issue when using the sshutil importpubkey utility is no longer prompting for password. Unsure if using the BNA could be used to bypass inserting a public key in lieu of CLI. Even tried ssh-copy-id to Brocade with no success. Is there a file or command that be looked at to see where or what is causing the hang up. Because this is production I have hesitated to reboot the Brocade altogether.

    brcsana-xxx-xxxp:FID128:admin> sshutil importpubkey
    Enter user name for whom key is imported:admin
    Enter IP address:xx.xx.xx.xx..xx
    Enter remote directory:/home/xxx/.ssh
    Enter public key name(must have .pub suffix):id_rsa.pub
    Enter login name: xxxxxx
    Failed to import public key.

    Issue is now resolved.

    The IP address of the server Brocade attempted to import was blocked by OpenStack Security Group. Added the Brocade IP address space, then password was prompted.
