Still Asking Password after setting SSH public key based Authentication

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to create password-less connection from server A to B and B to A as a normal user. (Not as root).

I was able to configure connection server A to but not B to A.

I cannot figure out where I got wrong. I have done steps according to link in both the servers.

One way is working but not the other way..

What am i to do.....

for B to A (not working connection (Still asking password))
I have run ssh -v <IP A>

log is as below,

debug1: Next authentication method : publickey
debug1: Trying private key:/binfs1/oracle/.ssh/identity
debug1: Offering public key: /binfs1/oracle/.ssh/id_rsa
debug1: Authentication that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password
debug1: Trying private key:/binfs1/oracle/.ssh/id_rsa
debug1: Next authentication method:password

asking for password .....
