|chdir||The chdir directive is used to force massadmin to change the running directory of massadmin. This overriden with the -r command line option (see USAGE).|
|login and password||
These two directives login and password are used to defined a common set
of login/password pair to use to connect to all following hostname definition.
Each login and password will be tried/used until a connection to the server is
openned and this is repeated for all servers in the list.
The separator is the colon character :. If you have this character in the password you have to add a backslash (\) before it.
These two directives can be replaced by the -p command line option (see USAGE).
The hostname line must be replaced by the server real hostname or his ip
address. You can also give a specific login/password for this host separated
by the colon character :. If you have this character in the password you
have to add a backslash (\) before.
Each defined host will be ping before all. If a server is not responding, it will be removed from the list and a warnong message will be displayed.
You may want to specify dynamically the server list to massadmin, for that use the -h command line option. The value of this option is a comma separated list of hostname like in the servers list file.
massadmin -h "srv1.mydom.com:root:adm12,srv2.mydom.com:root:adm34"
or the same but using the global login/password definition with the -p option
massadmin -h "srv1.mydom.com,srv2.mydom.com" -p "root:adm12,root:adm34"
If you have a comma in you password, you have to add a backslash (\) before as well has the login/password colon separator :.
- Protocol can be: FTP,TELNET,RSH,SSH,SCP,SFTP - Authen is the "login;password" phrase. Separator is a semi-colon ;. - command is any command handled by this protocol
Authen can be empty if you set login/password into the host list file.
FTP:ftpuser;ftppasswd:lcd /usr/tmp/:cd /usr/tmp:put foo.txt bar.txt: TELNET:username;userpassw:cd /home/foo:rm bar.txt: RSH:root:ls -la:
If you want to retrieve the output of a command just add a pipe at the end of the command, the result of the command will be added to the output stream:
RSH:root:ls -la: FTP:ftpuser;ftppasswd:lcd /ust/tmp/:cd /usr/tmp:ls -la|:bye: TELNET:usernam;userpassw:cd /home/toto:ls *.txt|:exit: SSH:usernam;userpassw:cd /home/toto:ls *.txt|:exit: # Local to remote (put) SCP:usernam;userpassw:local_source_file:remote_destination_file SCP:usernam;userpassw:local_source_dir:remote_destination_dir # Remote to local (get) SCP:usernam;userpassw::local_destination_file:remote_file SCP:usernam;userpassw::local_destination_dir:remote_dir SFTP:usernam;userpassw:cd /usr/tmp/:put foo.txt
All entries defined in the file are executed in the given order.
FTP::cd /usr/tmp/:del crontab.txt:del newcron.sh:put crontab.txt:ls | RSH::perl /root/change_network.pl| FTP::cd /home/someuser/:ls -la|:ls -la| TELNET::ls -la|:ps auxw | grep "named" | SSH::cd /home/someuser/:ls -la|:ls -la| # Local to remote (put) SCP::localarch.tar.gz:/user/tmp/localarch.tar.gz SCP::/opt/someApp/:/home/program/ # Remote to local (get) SCP:::/usr/tmp/localarch.tar.gz:localarch.tar.gz SCP:::/home/program/:/opt/someApp/
Here is how to do a su - as root user, the su - and root password is separated by a space character.
TELNET::su - RootPwd:ls -la |
In each command definition you can use the %SRVEXE_HOST special keyword, it will be replaced by the remote server hostname in which the command is executed. This is useful for example if you make backup and want to add the hostname into a filename.
Remember that the commands are passed to a Perl program (massadmin) so if you have special Perl characters like $ or other you need to escape them.
For example a call to a perl command to replace some string into a file must be written like that:
massadmin -h remotehost -p "root:admpasswd" \ -e "SSH::perl -p -i -e s/cn\: ([^\\s]+) (.*)/cn\: \$2 \$1/ ldap-add.ldiff"
This command revert the first and last name in a LDAP ldiff file.
The normal perl command line substitution call would be:
perl -p -i -e s/cn: ([^\s]+) (.*)/cn: $2 $1/ ldap-add.ldiff
Please always test your massadmin command before running it on mass hosts.
The authentication on remote servers can be defined at 3 different levels. Here are how they are used by massadmin in the order they will be executed.
In this example:
Command line level The command line configuration file support a per command authentication level. If you defined authent at this level, it will override all other authentication method. Or more precisely this will be the first tried, if it failed the 2 other authentication level will be tried. Hostname level The hostname definition allow a per host authentication level. If you defined authent at this level, it will override the global login/password definition. Global level In the login/password server list configuration directive you can defined a set of authentication users and password that will be tried on each remote servers in the order they are written.
./massadmin -h "remotesrv.mydom:root:mdpadm" -p "admin:pass1,root:pass2" \ -e SSH:root;myadmpass:/usr/sbin/ether-wake 00\:25\:44\:DA\:43\:BF |:exit:
The first authentication that will be tried is the one given in the SSH command, root;myadmpass. If it fail or is not defined, this will be the one given in the remote server definition, root:mdpadm and if it fail or is not defined here, massadmin will try each authentication defined in the -p command line option, admin:pass1 first and if it fail root:pass2.
