Hi,

On Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga),
I am trying to create a script that will automatically install software on a remote server.
I have it's root password and there are no security issues.
When I run the ssh/scp commands I get the question in the title.
I am looking for a way to automatically acknowledge this question

My code looks somthing like this:

ssh-keygen -R ${DG_NODE}
rm -rf  ~root/.ssh/id_rsa*                                            
alias scp='scp -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o BatchMode=yes '
ssh-keygen -q -t rsa -f aaa -N "" -f ~root/.ssh/id_rsa
scp ~root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@${DG_NODE}:~root/.ssh/authorized_keys

Using the -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null  option did not help as well.
Thanks

If you have copied the public key over and performed a manual ssh or scp using that from/to account, then you shouldn't be asked again unless the keys change.

Without a known_hosts key, no special options:
[user@phxbastion1 ~]$ ssh den1mmail3.den.domain.com
The authenticity of host 'den1mmail3.den.domain.com (10.191.15.226)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 9e:e6:c7:a6:ab:33:00:29:2a:bd:fa:67:6d:27:39:a6.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?

Without a known_hosts key, but with special options:
[user@phxbastion1 ~]$ ssh den1mmail3.den.domain.com -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null
Warning: Permanently added 'den1mmail3.den.domain.com,10.191.15.226' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
user@den1mmail3.den.domain.com's password:

known_hosts gets automatically updated with each new connection.  The author should not have to manually modify that file.

I don't think anyone is suggesting that.
