I've Problems with my openssh installation on AIX 5.2.
My ssh-keygen and sshd won't work.
The Installation of AIX was proper migrated from aix4.3.3 to aix5.2


I had some Problem with the openssl Installation but with that was a
Problem in the rpm Database. ( /usr/sbin/updtvpkg )
lppchk -vm3 -> ok
# rpm -V openssl-0.9.6m-1 openssl-devel-0.9.6m-1 openssl-doc-0.9.6m-1 -> ok

During the Installation of the Paket the post Installation Script will
generate the ssh keys.

# /usr/bin/ssh-keygen -q -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key -C
^C ( after 10 Minutes ;-> )

# ps -ef | grep ssh

-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     system       824998 Mar 18 2004

They looks the same as on all other Machines.....

I check the SSL Headers with the Script distributed by openssh in
