Most likely someone did a server update last night, because when I try to do a
rsync (from win 7) I get the message (short version):
WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED! It is possible that a host key has just been changed. The fingerprint for the ECDSA key sent by the remote host is SHA256:x0190vsJNHPmSADGhdfefSftjnF4sB38vsoHOKU. Please contact your system administrator. Add correct host key in */home/steven/.ssh/known_hosts* to get rid of this message. Offending ECDSA key in */home/steven/.ssh/known_hosts:1* ECDSA host key for [some.url.com]:18720 has changed and you have requested strict checking. Host key verification failed.
After looking at similar (identical) problems on the net, I have tried:
- ssh-keygen -R (to remove the Offending RSA key)
- Emptied my known_hosts file (it only has one line)
- Deleted known_hosts file
-o StrictHostKeyChecking=noin the ssh connection string
Then I tried to login in using ssh from command line by running
ssh server.domain.no and I got the following message:
The authenticity of host 'server.domain.no (255.200.211.255)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:wci/jhRN+wW56QcXOqKUkkZ5hgeJSp9qn32THbsmElI.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Selecting yes, it seems my known hosts files was created/ updated.
Warning: Permanently added 'server.domain.no,255.200.211.255' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.
The problem is that no new file was generated in /home/steven/.ssh/.
So where was this file generated?
How can I get the host key so that I may add it to my
Any help is greatly appreciated (as I'm banging my head to the wall).
