In case someone is interested, the problem was due to Mac OS 10.7.3 in my case. They changed the DNS resolve order at some point and now at first place is not /etc/hosts but your local DNS server or something like that. So, production.foo.com is resolved as pointing to a real host using this domain name. I changed foo.com to something non-existent in several rubber config files to solve this problem. Also edited /etc/hosts to have the new domain name I am using.


Hey, thanks for the episode. After running the command below:

cap rubber:create_staging

I get the following error:

connection failed for: production.foo.com (Net::SSH::AuthenticationFailed: root)

Assuming that it has something to do with the fact that Ubuntu would not allow a root user to ssh by default I changed my config/deploy.rb file to use ubuntu as user. However, after that I get a similar error:

connection failed for: production.foo.com (Net::SSH::AuthenticationFailed: ubuntu)

Does someone have an idea about why this could be happening. I think it may be related to the ssh keys used but to me things seem ok with them.
