Programming :: BASH - Create User And Password On Multiple Machines

Aug 9, 2010

I'm trying to write a script that will prompt the user for a username/password, then create that user/password in the right groups on all my machines. I know this is kind of a long way around to avoid a NIS server, but I like making my life more difficult.

This is what I have so far:

Code:

the script has 2 problems: The "if" functions return an error and do not compare the strings successfully. whatever password is entered does get applied properly and the user is unable to login

Apr 25, 2010

I'm trying to get a password in a bash script for mysql user creation. But sometimes a get a non-alphanumeric character(s) in the password, and mysql failes with that. I tryed with apg -EO0Il1`~!@#$%^&*()_+-=[];./{}|:"'<>? but failed. I tryed with sed 's/[^a-zA-Z2-9]//g' , but at that moment the minimum password lenght failed.

Programming :: Bash Scripting With Sudo / Password Prompt And Accepting User Input?

Jul 30, 2011

I'm creating a bash script to do some tasks for me. I would like the script to be run at a set time of everyday. My first question is if it is possible that if one of the commands in the script requires sudo, is there a way to get around it with out making sudo not require a password. Such as, is there a way to include the password in the script? If that is the case, I can always just set the file as read only by sudo. I've been looking for a way to do this, with no success. if I have a command that wants input, how do I give it to the program. For example, if I want to make a zip file that is encrypted, the command would go as:

Code:

zip -r example * -e

now how would I get the script to insert my wanted password.

Programming :: Run Multiple Bash And Php Scripts From A Bash Script?

Jul 25, 2011

I have written quite a few separate bash & scripts and php scripts that up to now I have run from cron jobs. However I have to estimate how long each takes to run, before running the next and so it probably takes much longer than necessary to run them all. They have to run in order.

Now there are so many I am thinking it would be better to have a master bash script that would run one after the other, but I am not sure how to get the master script to wait before starting to run the next script. Is this possible and is there a command that will make the script wait between bash and php scripts , for them to finish, before running the next?

Programming :: Read Multiple Input With Bash?

May 7, 2010

As I'm starting to learn bash scripting I'm trying to automatize some tasks I usually perform. I have a notification mail I need to send several times a day. It has this structure:

Quote:

Dear user,
blah blah blah blah

You need to contact the following people:

[code]...

To replace "user", I found this:

Code:

read -p "Please enter username: " username
echo "Dear $username,"

Which probe to be very useful with other simple notifications like this. But I don't know how to manage the email addresses as they are usually more than one and could vary from 1 to 10. They should appear one above the other. I found this: "Here is a little work around. The only thing the user needs to do is hit enter without anything else on a line and it will close out"

Code:

#!/usr/bin/ksh
word=a
until [[ $word = "" ]];do

[code]....

I tried to use it and modify for my needs but I failed, I don't realize yet how can I use it. If possible, I would like to use the until loop like the above example just for learning purposes but any other form will be accepted as well.

Programming :: Bash Scripting - Output As Multiple Files?

Jan 26, 2011

I have wrote a 1 line command that parses a file, locates the IP Address in the file and then trims the output the way I want it, and then sorts numerically and by uniqueness and then >> appends to output.txt

I can get all the IP's into 1 file "output.txt", but what I am really looking for is some type of way to create a text file, for each IP it finds labeled xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.txt and also put that ip address into that file..

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = the ip address it finds

Programming :: Python Passing Multiple Args To Bash

Jan 14, 2011

I have a text string I want to pass as the second arg to a bash shell.

My python line is :

The first arg "gap" works great and the bash shell uses it as $1

I need "fill" passed along as $2 intact

Here is the bash line:

As you can see after the -f it has to be in single quotes and $FILL will complete the single quote

Nothing is getting passed as a second arg from python, I did have the first word at one time but that was 85 tries ago and forgot how I did it!

The bash script complains about an unterminated quote.

Programming :: (BASH) How To Read Multiple Lines From Text File

Mar 11, 2011

For example, I have a text file with data which lists numerical values from two separate individuals

Code:
Person A
100
200
300
400
500
600
700
800
900
1000

1000
900
800
700
600
500
400
300

How would I go about reading the values for each Person, then being able to perform mathematical equations for each Person (finding the sum for example)?

Programming :: BASH - Renaming Multiple Files In Foreign Language?

Mar 6, 2011

I have this cool bash script that I worked hard on. But it broke down when it can across files that had non-English characters. Another small problem was getting it to descend into a directory. If it renamed a directory it would not descend into that dir to rename the other files. I would have to run the script twice on the same directory.

Here is the script:
Code:
find -type d -o -regextype egrep -iregex '(.*.ogg|.*.mp3|.*.wav)' | while read s
do
rename -v 'y/A-Z/a-z/' "$s"
done
find -type d -o -regextype egrep -iregex '(.*.ogg|.*.mp3|.*.wav)' | while read n
do
rename -v 's/ /_/g' "$n"
done
A French name like this:

Code:
Chateau De Sable (imagine accents above the letter a)
became this:

Code:
ch303242tea_de_sable
This is not what I wanted.

Why would the script not descend into a directory after it was renamed?

Programming :: Parse Multiple Variable From Text File With Bash?

Jul 13, 2010

I am trying to think of a logic where my file contains some data I had to read and do some processing. Issue is that file contains data multiple times. For example:

:::::::::::
var1=value1
var2=value2

[code].....

I have to read first paragraph of variables and do some processing and then move on until the end of file. Variable names are same in whole file but for each paragraph the value is different. I can't think of a logic to attain this task. How can I do it? It should be a simple bash script, but I am not able to work out.

Unless your distro has taken care of it Centos 5.5, you'll need to create a user with a password and read/write privileges for program database.

It asks for a password. how do i find out this password.

Ubuntu Security :: Desire - Create A Bash Script That Launches Skype Under A Separate User Account?

Mar 13, 2010

I want to jail Skype into its own process and not the one I login with. That way, if a hacker breaks in, it's limited to this process and only the limited functionality that that user account has. The thing is this -- thousands of Linux guys run Skype, but Skype is hardly ever updated or have security patches, and we run it all the time. It seems like an easy avenue for an exploit. As well, my iptables firew all blocks input connections that I have not established, but Skype is an established connection. How do I create a Bash script that launches Skype under a separate user account?

Programming :: BASH - Output Of Snmpget With Multiple OIDs Into Separate Variables

Jul 7, 2010

I have a problem with snmp answers being empty or having spaces.

What I already have:

#get all interface indexes (if you wonder - I'm working for a cable company and different cablemodems have different number and types of interfaces):

The problem is the physical address which is sometimes empty and the description which has spaces. So I'm doing 2 snmpgets which is slower than 1 snmpget (sometimes I have up to 18 interfaces).

I'm trying to explain it a bit simpler.

Interface 5 gives me back the following lines:

Ethernet CPE Interface

Now the first line should go into variable ifadm,
2nd line should go into variable ifoper,
3rd line should go into variable ifspeed,
4th line should go into variable iftype,
5th line (which is empty) should go into variable ifphys and finally
6th line (which has spaces) should go into variable ifdescr

The script won't exit until the number of times the user looks at a directory is reached! What gives?
