how to scp a file from server A to Server B where serverB user is different then server A

on serverA
$ls -l
-rw-r--r--  1 userA users 2584 Feb  1 09:18 first.xml

my script should create a directory on serverB and copy my file as well



usually i do open a seperate ssh window
on serverB
ssh webadmin@serverb
mkdir /tmp/web
exit

on serverA login as userA
$pwd
/usr/local/weblogic
$ls -l
-rw-r--r--  1 userA users 2584 Feb  1 09:18 first.xml
$scp first.xml webadmin@serverb:/tmp/web

Then i login into serverB and run
$cd /tmp/weblogic
$sudo -u webadmin cp first.xml /usr/local/weblogic

please provide single scp command which will do all these steps

Why do you copy it to a temp directory in the first place?

Why not just do
scp /usr/local/weblogic/first.xml webadmin@serverb:/usr/local/weblogic

Open in new window

The only way you're going to make it a single step is to either have sudo privs on serverA, in which case you can do

sudo -u webadmin scp /usr/local/weblogic/first.xml webadmin@serverb:/usr/local/weblogic

or have your .ssh installed on serverB in the webadmin account.

Please correct above command
