Trying to install a VRA on a host running in a vSAN-enabled cluster. Getting the below error. It’s a 3-node cluster. One of the other hosts failed with same error, but through trial and error I was able to deploy the VRA by simply choosing a local datastore (not vSAN datastore) and then svmotioning afterward. This host is continues to fail trying local storage and NFS storage.
VRA installation Failed:
an error has occured during vib ‘SshKeyAppendVib’ installation
Little more detail…
The host is esxi6.5 U1, managed by vCenter 6.5 U1 (appliance with external PSC).
Zerto version 5.5 U2
Specifying root password, instead of using shared key, for the VRA install was successful.
Thank you for sharing your solution!

I ran into this same problem on a SimpliVity HCI cluster, and the fix was to specify the VMware Host’s root PW.
