Hello,

I have been searching all of google and i am unable to figure my problem out.

I am using the perl module "NET::SCP::EXPECT" in the perl script i am writing. The script will basically go into multiple Linux servers and retrieve a specific file. I am using SSH keys so i dont have to provide a password as several servers have different passwords. When i run my script i get the following. All server OS's are Linux.


Error: Bad password [Enter ] at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Expect.pm line 733

Thanks for the help.


1 #!/usr/bin/perl
      2 
      3 #use strict;
      4 use warnings;
      5 use Net::SCP qw(scp iscp);
      6 use Net::SCP::Expect;
      7 use Net::SSH::Expect;
      8 
      9 
     10 $i = 0;
     11 
     12 @hosts = `cat ../cserver_list`;
     13 
     14 foreach(@hosts) {
     15 
     16 chomp($hosts[$i]);
     17         #print "Connecting to '$hosts'\n";
     18 
     19 my $scpe = Net::SCP::Expect->new(identity_file=>'/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa.pub');
     20 $scpe->scp('user@host:/dir/to/file.log','testers');
     21 
     22 $i++;
     23 
     24         }

Does the identity file have a pass-phrase?  I assume you can use normal scp -i /path/to/identity/file just fine?

You might try to use the host() and user() functions to set those separately.

Solved my issue.

once i thought about it. I am using the public key so i did not need to expect something. :)

I took the ::Expect off and it worked.

Thanks!
