I'm trying to scp some files between two remote servers. I use a
scp -i ssh_key root@comp1:/path1/file1 root@comp2:/path2/
This returns the error "Host key verification failed" and then I lose
the connection. Running in verbose mode tells me that the verification
fails for the destination server (comp2).
However, I know that the host key that I specify is correct for both
servers. I can successfully:
ssh -i ssh_key root@comp1
ssh -i ssh_key root@comp2
My ssh key has a passphrase and I use ssh-keychain (an OSX app) to
manage the passphrases for my sessions.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
