Indeed this is way out of scope for this list but the right thing to do is
to set up SSH IdentityFiles. "man ssh_config" and read about IdentityFile
directive and also man ssh-keygen. For more information a quick google
search will pop up millions of easy tutorials.

If your problem is that you have many servers and need to set up the
IdentityFiles to begin with, you can use an expect loop for that. Google
again will take care of you there.

Finally, if you have many machines you may want to look into true
configuration management solutions like Puppet/Chef.
