No - at the local machine.

As root - flexbackup is installed on one machine only and accesses  
three (four if you count one that is never done automatically) other  
machines by ssh.

I am.

Yes to all. flexbackup runs as root locally and uses ssh to get into  
all machines as root.

> Check the auth logs on the remote machine to see if there's any difference.

The auth logs indicate "failed password for root". However, if I ssh  
manually, I don't get prompted for one. The auth logs show "Accepted  
publickey for root" - just what I expect - and it works also when I  
run flexbackup manually.

The problem I face is, you cannot increase the verbosity of ssh as  
called by flexbackup - if I could do that I could see more about why  
it is failing.
