I try to get KeyAuthentication with Invoke-NaSsh to work. I get following error Message:
Invoke-NaSsh : Invalid private key file.
When I use plink.exe with this key I´m trying everything work fine.
In which format the ppk FIle is expected?
Can anyone send me out a valid public / private Key Pair, that I can check what is missing in my file.
See The Solution
The private key file should be in the OpenSSH format. If you are using PuTTYgen to create the .ppk, go to Conversions -> Export OpenSSH key to export the private key in the correct format.
