We are successfully using SSH hostkey-based authentication for our cluster. What I find really strange is that users still get to see messages like: Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address '192.168.0.136' to the list of known hosts. On and for each host, /etc/ssh/known_hosts contains the RSA and DSA keys, so there is really no point in adding them to the user's database. Moreover, if the admin actually puts a new host in place, users might get confused by the warning message. Is this a bug or a feature? How can I disable the use of ~/.ssh/known_hosts when the needed key is present in /etc/ssh/ssh_known_hosts? -- Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list! .''`. martin f. krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, user, and author `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
