I often do a lot of work with temporary Vagrant, Docker, VMs, and I don’t really want those host keys clogging up my ~/.ssh/known_hosts file. So I just add the following alias to my shell “rc” file. In my case, I use zsh so it’s ~/.zshrc :
alias ssh-nocheck="ssh -o 'StrictHostKeyChecking no' -o 'UserKnownHostsFile /dev/null'"
Viola! Now all I need to is to use something akin to:
ssh-nocheck -p 2222 email@example.com

I’ve resized many a ext4 partition, but now that XFS is the ‘default’ partition type for CentOS/RHEL 7 I am learning on the job, as the saying goes.

I love my Juniper gear, but some things are definitely more “verbose” to setup than need be, and SNMPv3 is one of them. And the KB docs don’t really help either. I found setting up OSPF easier than SNMPv3! But given the flexibility that Junos provides, I guess I’ll let them slide 😉
