Add Agentless Remote Connection

I've tried to configure an Agentless Remote Connection,

See this picture:




When I hit the test button I got this error message: Connection test failed (detail information: authentication error)

But when I test from any other Linux System to login with the same credentials, it works ! ;-)


When the Connection Test was run, I see the following error message on the Target Linux System:


Jan 11 15:02:58 starhawk sshd[16158]: Accepted password for haduser from port 54139 ssh2

Jan 11 15:02:59 starhawk sshd[16158]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user haduser by (uid=0)

Jan 11 15:03:00 starhawk unix_chkpwd[16193]: password check failed for user (root)

Jan 11 15:03:00 starhawk su: pam_unix(su-l:auth): authentication failure; logname=haduser uid=501 euid=0 tty=pts/2 ruser=haduser rhost=  user=root

Jan 11 15:03:03 starhawk sshd[16162]: Received disconnect from 11: The user disconnected the application

Jan 11 15:03:03 starhawk sshd[16158]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user haduser


What I can see here, the basic login as user haduser was successful, then the "Agentless Remote Connection" is playing something with the root user. And I see that the command "su -l" was  executed and this failed. Of course - and I don't want that something should be made by the user root.


Question: Why the "Agentless Remote Connection" needs to switch into root user account ?
