    Question Moving keys / .ssh?


    A question regarding moving keys and .ssh folders.

    I need to move users from one server (ServerC) to a new server (ServerA); in the process can I move their .ssh folder and any authorized_key files to my new server and when they log into ServerA, their authentication remains unchanged?

    Users are accessing ServerC from ServerD, do we need to perform a keygen between ServerD and ServerA? With this option, I assume there's no need to move their files from ServerC to ServerA.

    The point for doing this excercise is minimizing any disruptions to my clients on ServerD.

    Thanks in advance,

    Should work if ownership and permissions are correct. I've copied the same pubkey to several machines' ~/.ssh/authorized_keys for authentication purposes.

    Thanks for the quick reply, I'll move the files over and give it a try.
