We have a user that is not set up with a password but authorized_keys. In the key, we specify multiple ips since this user could come from multiple servers all with the same key. The key works just fine on AS 3 and Rhel 5 but on AS 4, if I do not put the hostname in instead of the ip I get this in my secure log:
Nov 19 15:03:11 server sshd: Authentication tried for user with correct key but not from a permitted host (host=server2 .example.com, ip=::ffff:10.7.224.65). Nov 19 15:03:11 server sshd: Failed password for user from ::ffff:10.7.224.65 port 55480 ssh2 Nov 19 15:03:11 server sshd: Failed password for user from ::ffff:10.7.224.65 port 55480 ssh2 Nov 19 15:03:11 server sshd: Connection closed by ::ffff:10.7.224.65
Here is what the authorized_keys file looks like
