Here you have my case as example:

root@er1smc1>ssh-keygen -t rsa
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (//.ssh/id_rsa):
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:
Your identification has been saved in //.ssh/id_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in //.ssh/
The key fingerprint is:
1a:c9:6f:a5:4e:72:80:05:d7:05:3c:bb:6a:20:0a:5b root@er1smc1


root@er1smc1>ls -lrt
