|Question:||How to properly setup an SSH backup to GOSH using LONE-TAR?|
|Keywords:||ssh, gosh, remote|
Commands below that display the GOSH Account Username as '1234', please replace with the proper username provided to you by GOSH.
If you are having issues backing up to GOSH using the IP address hostname (secure.gosh.com) please replace with IP Address: 188.8.131.52
1. Generate the SSH keys
# ssh-keygen -t dsa
Be sure to leave the pass-phrase of the DSA key blank by pressing <ENTER>
2. Upload SSH keys to GOSH
For single server setup [LINUX]:
# scp /root/.ssh/id_dsa.pub 1234®secure.gosh.com:.ssh/authorized_keys
For single server setup [SCO]:
# scp /.ssh/id_dsa.pub 1234®secure.gosh.com:.ssh/authorized_keys
For multiple server setup [LINUX]:
# cat /root/.ssh/id_dsa.pub | ssh 1234®secure.gosh.com 'dd of=.ssh/authorized_keys oflag=append conv=notrunc'
For multiple server setup [SCO]:
# cat /.ssh/id_dsa.pub | ssh 1234®secure.gosh.com 'dd of=.ssh/authorized_keys oflag=append conv=notrunc'
