With changing to a new mailserver, we had to revoke individual sshkeys in known_hosts, and add in a default system one instead.

for user in `ls /home/`

       if [ -f "/home/$user/.ssh/known_hosts" ]; then
               echo "Doing User Search and Replace for $user"

       mv /home/$user/.ssh/known_hosts /home/$user/.ssh/known_hosts.bak
           grep -v "^[^#]*\($HOSTKEY\)" < /home/$user/.ssh/known_hosts.bak > /home/$user/.ssh/known_hosts
               chown $user:users /home/$user/.ssh/known_hosts

"grep -v" was used to select the "inverse" of a search string.
