When you create the server make sure you click on the the correct key in “ADD optional SSH keys”

If all is correct it should use the ssh key to login. Root password SHOULD NOT be emailed to you in this instance.

I have created the droplet from a snapshot..and in the previous snapshot i used ssh
Now i make a snapshot and create a new server with SSH keys

Now i have this message “Agent admitted failure to sign using the key.” when trying to login using SSH
