comment Forcing rsync to non-interactive mode
@Stabledog - My advice is the correct advice for the vast majority of use cases. However, I concede that when you don't believe a bad actor can reasonably obtain access to your network to perform a MiTM attack, you can choose a weak security configuration. The security configuration required for a lab environment (as you mentioned) will obviously differ from a production environment because the risk is naturally reduced.

comment Forcing rsync to non-interactive mode
Please do NOT use these settings. See section 11.5 of Oreilly's "SSH, The Secure Shell: The Definitive Guide, Second Edition". According to the book: "Unfortunately, effectively skipping server authentication disables a vital part of SSH security: resistance to server host spoofing and man-in-the-middle attacks! This situation also makes it impractical to replace server keys periodically, as should be done, or to revoke a key in case it is known to be compromised (i.e., tell clients to no longer trust it)."
