SFTP Error Reporting

With SI v6.0 and above the error reporting to SFTP has changed, with earlier versions we used to get clear failure messages like 'Known host keys mismatch', etc, whereas now we get more of a generic message like 'SSH_DISCONNECT_BY_APPLICATION:SFTP session channel closed by server.:'

This creates problem while troubleshooting the cause of error.

Please ensure that the status report is showing useful, specific error messages as it was before
