SSH Script Execution in Windows Batch
Posted on 2016-08-26
I have a HPE M330 OfficeConnect 802.11ac access point. It needs to be rebooted periodically in order to run well.
The easiest way to reboot the AP is to SSH in and issue the 'reboot' command.
I am able to connect via plink.exe to reach the shell and manually enter reboot, but when I try to pull the command from a text file, I get an error ": cannot open" Ultimately, I want to create a batch file and run it as a scheduled task.
Here's the command line:
plink -ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -pw xxxxxxx -m reboot.txt -v
reboot.txt contains reboot on a single line with a return at the end (created in notepad).
Here is the verbose output of the plink command line. I'd appreciate any assistance.
C:\Utility>plink -ssh email@example.com -pw xxxxxxx -m reboot.txt -v
