view full story

http://www.unix.com – Hi , I am trying to create public key on my AIX server on other than home directory.However the command does not ask for Enter file in which to save the key : It is directly taking me to Enter the passphrase. I don't want to save the key in home dir as that is the home dir for other userID too. Please help. Here is the screenshot : Code: $ ssh-keygen -t dsa -b 1024 Generating 1024-bit dsa key pair 9 oOo.oOo.oOoo Key generated. 1024-bit dsa, [email protected], Thu Feb 16 2012 16:20:56 -0600 Passphrase : Again : Error occurred, private key not written: No such file or d (HowTos)
