Yes, we are using key-based authentication, so no password is needed for
root on one machine to access all other machines thru SSH as root.
Basically, we have told all the client machines that our server is an
authorized host, and therefore (if root) not to prompt for a password.
As for scp on the command line, I haven't tested that yet, but will do soon
if I have time...
Thanks for your help so far :D
