if i put everything in the same script it would become (nederlands: onoverzichtelijk) hard to review.
So we decided to split the testscript and mainscript apart

i have an idea:

if i do another ssh keyswap (but now i start on the remote server) and when i found a warning/error in a file, i put this in a logfile.
and then i copy this file with scp from the remote to the local server. and then i check the logfile

let's try that

hmm this is strange..

i did a ssh key swap again (like one in the first post of this thread) and it fails, i mean, i still need to log on everytime...
i've followed the steps he described (but then starting from the other server) and it fails...

is it because theire is already a key that it fails? or is it something else?

Hello,

You don't need to copy 'from' the remote server 'to' your computer. You can just use scp reversed like this:
Code:
scp user@host:/path/to/file/filename .
will copy the file 'filename' to the location where you execute the command, using your key as set up before. No need to generate keys on the other side to obtain this.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Nope, you provide the user/host combination of the server you're going to connect to. If you want to upload a file with scp you use this:
Code:
scp filename user@host:/path/to/upload
If you want to download a file you use this:
Code:
scp user@host:/path/to/download/filename . (or path where you want to save the file to)
In both occasions you have to authenticate to the remote server, not your local machine.

Kind regards,

Eric

this is the situation:

testscript
Code:
#!/usr/bin/ksh

scp user@remotehost:/some/folder/logfile.txt .
mainscript
Code:
#!/bin/bash

ssh user@remotehost 'echo test'
scp /folder/scp_cd.sh user@remotehost:/some/folder/
ssh user@remotehost 'pwd'
ssh user@remotehost './scp_cd.sh'
ssh user@remotehost 'cd /some/folder/; rm -f scp_cd.sh'
ssh user@remotehost 'echo einde'
result
Code:
test
scp_cd.sh                                                                           100%  111     0.1KB/s   00:00

Hi,

Delete line 22 in /home/youruser/.ssh/known_hosts and try again. Also, you said you've split the script in two to keep it under control (overzichtelijk), but you might loose control if you execute a script on the other side. If it fails and terminates the connection for example because of a command inside it, you'll loose your connection without viewing any error messages. On the other hand if you use everything from your side in one script, you'll know which command is the culprit since you get all output directly to your console. If you want some more clarification, feel free to contact me off line (sending me a PM or mail).

Kind regards,

Eric
