Yet another SSHing into VM topic

Hello, I think this is another situation where I am missing the forest for all the trees…

Using a single node/host set up, I have a ubuntu 17.04 VM created from the ubuntu 17.04 kvm image downloaded from opennebula. In the template i have ‘add ssh context’ checked and have the oneadmin user’s public ssh key in the ‘ssh public key’ box.

Every attempt to ssh to the VM ends up with: Permission denied (publickey).

I know this topic has been covered a lot but i seem to have tried everything…

Any thoughts/suggestions on what i am missing?

Thanks in advance.
