Clarify that SSH keys must not have passphrases in docs

Reported by Jonathan Clarke | February 12th, 2011 @ 05:14 AM | in Rundeck 1.2


Having just started out with RunDeck, I stumbled for a while into a confusing problem, which could be easily avoided by a simple message in the docs.

My SSH key (id_rsa) had a passphrase. When running commands via the web interface, I got a weird error message about groovy missing an Execution tag. When running via the CLI tools, I was told I needed a id_dsa key (not DSA not RSA)... The solution was simply to remove my passphrase.

May I suggest you add this in this chapter: http://rundeck.org/docs/RunDeck-Guide.html#configuring-remote-machi... ?

Thanks for the great work!
