Okay, I looked in the so-called cloud forums, but that place is a ghost town, and I'm a slacker, so considering the two paradigms that:
- The cows come home
- it really makes no difference that this is a a cloud question anyway
I thought that I would ask here....
I just cloned about two dozen instances of a slackware -current box under VMware, and I'm concerned that they all have the same keys under /etc/ssh, so my question is this:
- After I change the IP in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
- and the hostnames and other applicable info in /etc/HOSTNAME, /etc/resolv.conf,
- What do I need to do to change the keys (if anything or should I be looking somewhere elese?, in /etc/ssh/?
- The MAC addys are already different when I cloned the box in VMware.
- Are there other tasks I need to perform to make these boxes unique aside from their respective hostnames?
My understanding is that I can just delete something and all those keys will be recreated on the next boot, or perhaps there is a job that I can run to recreate the server keys...
I know not what those steps are, however.
Any help would be most appreciated. Any additional tasks I need to perform that you can fill me in on would be fanstastic.
