What automating tasks with ssh, it can be annoying to be prompted to confirm the
authenticity of host.
The authenticity of host 'host.example.com (NN.NN.NN.NN)' can't be established. RSA key fingerprint is af:78:f8:fb:8a:ae:dd:55:f0:40:51:29:68:27:7e:7c. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
Here's a simple way around that:
# This automatically adds the fingerprint to # ~/.ssh/known_hosts ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no host.example.com # This doesn't add fingerprint ssh -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no host.example.com
