Did you check the box - generate trusted key. I think this is present
during the task creation.
The linux machines need this check box to be checked ;-)

Subject: IT assistant - Software updates

I am trying to update my 30 Poweredge 2950 servers. I have got them all 
displaying in ITAssistant and copied all the updates from the online 
repository to the IT Assistant repository. I assume i then go to tasks 
and create a software update task for them.
When the task runs it fails and i get this message:

The task failed for the target device
File deploy command failed to execute with error message: The server's 
host key is not cached in the registry. The system may not be the same.

My IT assistant is on a Windows XP machine and my Servers run centos5.

I don't know where the host key would be located in Windows

Can anyone help
