From the remote server to which the LoadMaster backups will be sent:
Run the ssh-keygen command to generate the public/private rsa key pair.
Do not assign a passphrase (leave the value empty).
By default this will create the following files in the /home/user/.ssh/ directory:
id_rsa (private key file) - this file will be uploaded to the LoadMaster.
id_rsa.pub (public key file) - this value needs to be copied into the appropriate files on the remote host.
Run the ssh-copy-id command to copy the public key information into the “authorized_keys” and “known_hosts” files.
The /home/user/.ssh directory now has the following files.
authorized_keys id_rsa id_rsa.pub known_hosts
Export the private key file (id_rsa) from the server. This will be used for the Remote Identity value on the LoadMaster.
Be sure to create a backup directory on the server and enter this path under Remote Pathname on the LoadMaster. Ex: /home/user/LMbackups
