a. Generate SSH key on the target server (not the Storage Server!):
ssh-keygen -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa -q -P ""
b. Copy created SSH key to the Storage Server from the target server:
ssh-copy-id -i /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@storage_server_IP
c. Test connection between the target server and the Storage Server. Execute this command from the target server:
rsync -avz -e "ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null" --progress /home storage_server_IP:/home/storage
