tips on using ssh-copy-id under redhat 5
Posted on 2012-09-16
I have copied my keys to many machines using ssh-copy-id
If I rerun it on a host, I understand it will put my key in there twice.
Is there a quick / easy command to determine if I already have a key on a box ? I was considering using scp to copy a file howver that can have some long time outs if it is a failure..
When I copy a key I have to manually type in "yes" to add the host to a file of machines I know.
Also I have to type the password !
I also need to key AIX and solaris boxes. Any issues with these ?
Do you know a way to reduce the work of doing this ? I have tried passing a password in the past with some sort of script, I really would prefer my password not be in the history file.
