Yes when you do a :
scp freenx-server1:/usr/NX/home/nx/.ssh/\* /usr/NX/home/nx/.ssh/

you also copy known_hosts, which will contain an entry: with the key host of fai-server1
when you would like to have the key host a fai-server2.
and then BANG nothing is working... it take me quite a couple of time to 
  point out the problem.

What could be good is to have nxsetup to be as:
Syntax: nxsetup --help
         nxsetup --install [--setup-nomachine-key] [--uid <nummber>]
                           [--clean [--purge]]
         nxsetup --uninstall [--purge]
new-->  nxsetup --check-install  [--clean]

the --check-install will provide an easy way to see if the nx server is 
well configured. It will be a good idea to be able to laucnh it 
indepedently from --install.
And in the --clean option we could add a
  - rm -f /usr/NX/home/nx/.ssh/known_hosts
  - echo "rm /usr/NX/home/nx/.ssh/known_hosts"
Because this file is anyway generated automatically with the help of
