lost the key

hi there,

I created keys for user abc in order to:
/home/abc $ ssh remote_host date
Thu Dec  8 16:32:14 EST 2005

works without the need for a password.

When I log on as root I would expect:

/ # ssh -l abc remote_host date

to work as well but the result is:

No RSA host key is known for "remote_host" and you have requested
strict checking.
Host key verification failed.

Do I need to install additional keys or is it a matter of configuration
file adaptation?

Thanks for all help.

This is not generally a good idea; see:

This is server authentication, not client.  You can either do:

  ssh -ostricthostkeychecking=no

and it will add the hostkey, or get the hostkey yourself by other, trusted
means if you want to be more careful.
