I have issue installing Vertica on Cluster

Excuse me for my English, I hope you can help me.

I've been trying to install vertica in clusters for several days. I have already performed the procedures indicated in the manual, you can connect via SSH on both servers without asking for a password, but every time I give install_vertica -nodo -file -user --Failure-Threshold NONE (example:./install_vertica -s, -P ***** -i /root/ftp/vertica_9.1.1-0_amd64.deb -u dbadmin --failure-threshold NONE) I get the following error.

Error: /root/ftp/vertical_9.1.1-0_amd64.deb is not passwordless SSH private key or could not be accessed.
Hint: --ssh-identity can only accept unprotected private keys. Use an SSH agent for password protected keys. See online documentation for more information
Installation FAILED with errors.

I have tried everything, I have read many forums, blogs and manuals and nothing that I get a solution.

Can you help me?

    Hi! Welcome to the forums!

    The -i parameter is to point to your SSH private key. You need to use the -r parameter to point to the Vertica deb package.

    ./install_vertica -s, -P ***** -r /root/ftp/vertica_9.1.1-0_amd64.deb -u dbadmin
