I have a batch job that kicks off sometimes and it uses scp to transfer newely created files from one server to the next with password-less keys. It fails sometimes, but not all of the time. One thing I see is scp -v -f /filename, in the verbose output, when I only specify scp -v in the actual command. Does anyone know what the -f means? I assume file, but that's never safe.
I get a permission denied from the push server as well, and I 've been trying to regenerate it, but to no avail. Does anyone know why I would get an intermitent permission denied error from the push server? I'm at my wits end.
