Description Taco Scargo 2017-08-01 11:21:53 EDT
Document URL: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_gluster_storage/3.2/html/administration_guide/chap-red_hat_storage_volumes#idm140421623822176

Section Number and Name: 
5.1.1 Getting started - Prerequisites

Describe the issue: 
When issuing the documented command: "ssh-keygen -f id_rsa -t rsa -N", the key files will be generated in the home directory, instead of the .ssh directory.
By removing "-f id_rsa", they will be created in the .ssh directory.

When issuing the following documented command "ssh-copy-id -i root@server", the command will not be able to find the key, unless you have put them in the .ssh directory.

Suggestions for improvement: 
Remove -f id_rsa from first command
