I’m trying to connect jenkins on a github repo.
When I specify the Repo URL jenkins return the following error message:
Failed to connect to repository : Command “git ls-remote -h [email protected]:adolfosrs/jenkins-test.git HEAD” returned status code 128:
stderr: Host key verification failed.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
When using the HTTPS:// Url jenkins returns:
Failed to connect to repository : Failed to connect to
https://github.com/adolfosrs/jenkins-test.git (status = 407)
I could successfully clone the repo at the same machine where jenkins is running and I also run the
git ls-remote -h [email protected]:adolfosrs/jenkins-test.git HEAD command. So I have the right SSH at github.
The problem was that somehow I created the ssh files with the root user.
So the files owner was root.
The solution was just change the ownership to the jenkins user.
chown jenkins id_rsa.pub chown jenkins id_rsa
