.ssh/known_host file is auto generated.

if it is deleted then don't worry, wen you try to ssh again with any of your instance the known_host file will be automatically generated and the respective id's are saved.

i just tried it by moving the known_hosts file from .ssh folder to some other folder making .ssh empty and then tried ssh command to some other system the known_host file is automatically generated and ID's are saved in it.

give a try.
