Generate Public Key when the server is not ssh enabled

I am writing a script that needs to access various servers some of which are not ssh enabled. In order to access the ssh enabled servers I am using the following command to generate the public key :
ssh-keygen -t rsa

Is there a similar command for the other servers as well.
If I try to use this command on the servers that aren't ssh enabled I am getting the following error :
Couldn't connect to PRNGD socket "/var/spool/prngd/pool": Permission denied. couldn't read entropy commands file /usr/local/etc/ssh_prng_cmds: No such file or directory. ssh-rand-helper child produced insufficient data

Please advice.
