I am attempting to log into an instance I created in the IBM cloud.
When I attempt to execute the command "ssh -i ~/.ssh root@[IP_address of my instance], I receive the error "Load key "/root/.ssh/": Is a directory root@[IP_address of my instance]'s password:
Prior to executing this command, I did run ssh-keygen and was able to generate new set of files i.e., id_rsa and id_rsa.pub.
I have run the chmod 700 on the 2 files id_rsa and id_rsa.pub but this appears to not have worked.
Can someone help me understand why the command above i.e., "ssh -i ~/.ssh root@[IP_address of my instance] results in this error?
