SSH key does not not work for CVS checkout

One of my users is having a problem with SSH keys on the

On machine Arnold:

export CVSROOT=:ext:ibmkanrsa_at_cvs.cs.xxxsource.xxx.com:/cvsroot/cdi

export CVS_RSH=ssh

cvs co buildtools/cdi-buildtools/Configuration

It asks for the password. It shouldn't as we have the SSH key setup. If we enter the password, the content checked out fine.

I have checked the other user ID, and the same problem.
It blocks our build automation. Our test automation server has stopped working.

I did some research and sent this to them to try:

1. Make CVS use SSH: Add the following to your ~/.bashrc shell configuration script.

export CVS_RSH=ssh

2. Tell CVS where your repository is: type this in

export CVSROOT=user_at_cvs.server:/path/to/repository in your case:
export CVSROOT=bmkanrsa_at_cvs.cs.xxxxource.xxx.com:/cvsroot/cdi

3. cvs co buildtools/cdi-buildtools/Configuration

They stated that they made the change as I suggested and are still have the same problem. of course I am combing through archives, etc looking for a possible solution to this problem.

Has anyone ever seen this before? Thank you
