Batch deployment of DSA key (SSH) and schedule backup with export
Use SSH to execute commands (DSA key login) shows you how to create a DSA key file.
Make a file on your *nix host with the following content. Call the file "distr_key.sh"
#!/bin/sh scp id_dsa.pub admin@$1:. ssh admin@$1 "user ssh-keys import file=id_dsa.pub user=admin" echo "$1 " >> node_list
$1 in this script is the first argument passed from command line with the script. It should be a hostname or a ip adresse.
sh distr_key.sh 192.168.10.1(make this file executible with "chmod 755 distr_key.sh" to avoid execute the shell with parametre)
You will be prompted for the admin password twice, once for the file transfer and once for the import dsa-key command. When the script ends it will apply the hostname or ip adresse to a new file called "node_list". This file will be used later on for the backup/export script.
Now you create a new file on your *nix host with the following content. Call the file "backup.sh"
#!/bin/sh dato=`date +%y%m%d` liste=`cat node_list` echo Starting backup for node in $liste ; do echo Backing up $node ssh admin@$node export > $dato\_$node done; echo Finished ls -l $dato*
Run the script file from command line with
sh backup.shor make the backup file executible with chmod like above.
