Would you know if movement like that between machines should create an issue? I was figuring the key could be exported from one UNIX machine and imported to another, but I did not know if the machine ID was part of the key.
--export only emits the public keys, not the secret keys. You'd want
--export-secret-keys if you wanted to transfer the secret keys as well.
