I have to install an 12.2 instance for that we need a password less SSH connection between 2 applications nodes. I created the instance using a private key called EC2_linux. I am able ssh to another ec2 instance as ec2-user but I want to connect as user appltest. I tried the following process but it is not working.

  1. Server1: ssh-keygen -t rsa
  2. Server1: copied the id_rsa.pub to server2
  3. server2: cat id_rsa.pub >> .ssh/authorized-keys But I am unable to SSH to the server2 as "ssh appltest@server2" without password. How to achieve this setup?
