Handling Multiple SSH Host Keys in Batch Mode

Good day

I have to connect to a host in batch mode. This works fine but problems start
as the host presents different SSH Host Keys. I've noticed two different keys
which breaks the batch mode as I don't know how to update the cache automatically.
While I can find many references about why one should not do so I can't find any hint
about how to accept any new key presented on this specific IP.

Is there a way to answer "YES" to the question about the new host key?

Thanks in advance
Chris

Why does the key change?

Thanks for your attention.

The host is actually 2 active hosts behind a VIP. It's a bank so I doubt that we can get that changed.

Any chances to force the acceptance of two keys?

Thanks
Chris
