Oracle Service Bus SFTP: BEA-381801 InvalidHostFileException

I have just been working on an OSB SFTP business service, and got this error while testing the service.

While googling, I found out that you need to create a known_hosts file inside your OSB domain. The easiest way of creating a known_hosts file for me, was to use Cygwin and create a ssh (or sftp) connection to the destination.

Steps for the solution:

  • Cygwin: log in to remote system via ssh (or sftp)
  • Copy known_hosts file from ~/.ssh to OSB directory
  • Test business service

Cygwin: login to remote system

Use this command to login to the remote system:

ssh username@hostname

Optionally: Type ‘yes’ when asked if you trust this host

This will create an entry in your known_hosts file in the .ssh folder in your cygwin home directory

This is a (scrambled) contents of the known_hosts file:

joris@jorisworkstation/cygdrive/c/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/joris_domain/config/osb
$ cat ~/.ssh/known_hosts
10.200.242.65 ssh-rsa <<INSERT A LOT OF GARBLEGARBLE>>

Copy the known_hosts file to OSB

First we need to create the SFTP transports directory in the domain home:

Go to <<domain_home>>/config/osb and create this structure: (Only create the directories in RED)

- <<domain_home>>
- config
- osb
- transports
- sftp

We are now ready to copy the known_hosts file:

In cygwin:

 cp ~/.ssh/known_hosts /cygdrive/c/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/joris_domain/config/osb/transports/sftp

In Windows: Find known_hosts in your cygwin home folder (in my case: in C:\development\program\cygwin\home\joris.visscher\.ssh\known_hosts) and copy it to the newly created “sftp” folder in your domain home.

Test business service

All steps are now done, we can test the business service!

Additional information:

You will encounter the following error in your logs when this error occurs:
