The command gpssh-exkeys fails with the error
Host key for server XX.XX.XX.XX does not match
The file ~/.ssh/known_hosts stores the hosts' public keys. If the host key changes because the IP address has moved to a new host to the remote host has been re-installed, then the old known key needs to be removed from the known_hosts file.
- Edit the file ~/.ssh/known_hosts using VI or another editor
- Search for and remove the lines that refer to the IP address in the error message
- Then re-run the gpssh-exkeys command
