I have one server that I ssh into from my local box. From there, I control my other 40 servers by ssh'ing into them. Just took over for an admin who was worlds better than me and am having trouble now. I know the passphrase for the dsa key, and it uses it a lot of the time. But on a few connections, it uses the rsa key. Is there a way to choose which one is used by default? I found that I was able to accomplish this be renaming the rsa keys to something useless, but that feels cheap to me.
