@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that a host key has just been changed.
The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
ac:e0:b0:90:72:14:68:fe:3c:4b:a0:f9:64:d6:f4:11.
Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in /home/donghua/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Offending RSA key in /home/donghua/.ssh/known_hosts:1
remove with: ssh-keygen -f "/home/donghua/.ssh/known_hosts" -R vmxdb02
RSA host key for vmxdb02 has changed and you have requested strict checking.
Host key verification failed.
