SSH Upgrade Question

Hi,

I want to upgrade the SSH version on some of the hp boxes. It'll be a generic question since I'm upgrading different OS version (11.11/11.23/11.31) to different SSH versions.

Will ssh keys be impacted after SSH upgrade?
Though I'll be saving files in $HOME/.ssh for root.

Thanks in advance!!

No, they should not be. I've updated SSH numerous times and don't recall ever having an issue with my SSH keys.

What do you want, a written guarantee? If
so, then you might need to specify exactly
from what and to what you're upgrading.

In general, if you're not changing from an
OpenSSH-compatible product to (or from) an
SSH2-compatible product, then you should have
nothing to worry about (involving the key
files, anyway).

It's a good thing, too, as extracting those
impacted key files can involve painful
surgery.
