[cfarm-users] Does gcc304 sync certificates?

Given one needs to actually be on the machine to edit that file, I understood the advice to use the web form (which helpfully shows the authorized_keys file contents on it).

So, given that rsa key is supposed to work, this apparently isn't the correct fix.  Any other reason why my keys aren't syncing from the profile to that machine?  I'm told it syncs to 40 machines, but I see 54 machines on the list, so I'm guessing this is one of the 14 machines that doesn't sync somehow?

    RSA works just fine, please don't spread misinformation.  It is the only
    key type that works on all hosts, too.

    You should never edit authorized_keys on the cfarm; use the web
    interface instead, it keeps things properly in synch.

    Using elliptic curve keys is good for speed of course, on the hosts
    where that works (only the speed to establish the connection, it isn't
    used after that).
