I have created a link between my two esxi hosts, and it seems to works as intended, however , if I try to manually SSH or SCP between the same two hosts, I get a password promt. I am trying to make an automated file transfer between these two hosts, but the transfer stops at the password promt.
Do I need to create a seperate RSA pair? Will the new Pair overwrite the old pair? Is it possible to have to separate RSA pairs?
Make sure you reference the XSIBackup RSA key by using the -i switch when using the SSH client as described in the Open SSH client man page: SSH Client Man Page
Selects a file from which the identity (private key) for RSA or DSA authentication is read. The default is ~/.ssh/identity for protocol version 1, and ~/.ssh/id_rsa and ~/.ssh/id_dsa for protocol version 2. Identity files may also be specified on a per-host basis in the configuration file. It is possible to have multiple -i options (and multiple identities specified in configuration files).
