           Summary: OpenSSH 3.8p1 PRNG seed extraction failed error
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.8p1
          Platform: UltraSparc
        OS/Version: SunOS
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: scp
        AssignedTo: openssh-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: stephen.berliner at ngc.com

I get these errors while running a Korn shell script which runs installations 
on multiple servers from a single server location. some processes are run in 
background such as copying files to the servers. During the copy process at 
different times between the 5th and 7th process I get these errors. 

PRNG seed extraction failed
ssh-rand-helper child produced insufficient data

I have no clue as to what is going on but this same script worked under the 
previous version of ssh that only supported ssh1.

Can anyone please help.
