Help with scripting to HP Procurve

When I try to run a simple script to change passwords on a 2524, I keep getting the below running instead of my script. Is there a way to make this stop? Thanks

 

Password:

 

sw-dr1-taperoom# enable

sw-dr1-taperoom# conf t

sw-dr1-taperoom(config)# console local-terminal none

sw-dr1-taperoom(config)# end

sw-dr1-taperoom# terminal length 1000

 

sw-dr1-taperoom# terminal width 1920

 

sw-dr1-taperoom# no page

sw-dr1-taperoom#

Can you post the script and remove the new password?

Thank you. It does match the scropt block fine and connects to the switch just fine according the session logs. its more than likely something I am doing and I am fairly new to this. Thanks again

Hi Brian,

 

I see 2 things that may help, but not positive.  In Python, indentation is important.  The lines after the "With" statement should be indented.  Secondly, I have never needed to use a "\n" on the end of each easy.send_command.

 

Let me know if this helps.

 

-Lon.

This:

with NetMRIEasy(**defaults) as easy:
    easy.send_command("conf t");
    easy.send_command("password all");
    easy.send_command("new_op_pass");
    easy.send_command("new_op_pass");
    easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass");
    easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass");
    easy.send_command("exit");
    easy.send_command("exit");
    easy.send_command("y");

ok, so we made a little progress with that. So now we are stuck on the interactive shell from the HP.

 

it stops as its waiting for the new password and then a return. 

 

sw-dr1-taperoom# no page

sw-dr1-taperoom# conf t

sw-dr1-taperoom(config)# password all

New password for Operator:  <- stuck here waiting. I think we might need to some how tell it that this is what is expected and then print the password variable $new_op_pass maybe?

Now add back this:

easy.send_command("new_op_pass\n");
easy.send_command("new_op_pass\n");
easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass\n");
easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass\n");

or this

easy.send_command("new_op_pass\n new_op_pass\n new_mgr_pass\n new_mgr_pass\n");

There is a previous post that might have a solution for you.  Please see Interactive commands OR How to set a password in Junos.

 

The solution in there is for Perl, but I believe Python should have the same capabilities of using a second parameter.

 

Try:

 

easy.send_command("password all","New password for Operator:");
easy.send_command("new_op_pass");

 

I haven't tried this, but the other way is what Sif just posted, which should work to.

Hi Lon,

 

So the procurves reply with an interactive shell. So when it asks me or 

 

New password for Operator:       <- I need to feed it the new password and hit enter. I thought the \n would tell it a new line was necessary which would get the switch to print out the next response which is

 

 

Please retype new password for Operator:   <- then i reprint the the new password again.

 

it just keeps getting stuck waiting for the password, so whateve I'm doing its not getting the password variable.

If it got by the first prompt (you didn't say if it did or not), then try:

 

easy.send_command("password all","New password for Operator:");
easy.send_command("new_op_pass","Please retype new password for Operator:");
easy.send_command("new_op_pass");

ok that worked so that last part is to exit out of each level

 

with NetMRIEasy(**defaults) as easy:
easy.send_command("conf t");
easy.send_command("password all", "New password for Operator:");
easy.send_command("new_op_pass", "Please retype new password for Operator:");
easy.send_command("new_op_pass", "New password for Manager:");
easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass", "Please retype new password for Manager: ");
easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass", "[A-Za-z0-9\-](config)# ");
easy.send_command("exit", "[A-Za-z0-9\-]# ");
easy.send_command("exit", "[A-Za-z0-9\-]> ");
easy.send_command("exit", "Do you want to log out [y/n]?");
easy.send_command("y");

 

My regex might be wrong?

 

Here is what is happenng:

 

 

sw-dr1-taperoom# conf t

sw-dr1-taperoom(config)# password all

New password for Operator: ***********

Please retype new password for Operator: ***********

New password for Manager: ************

Please retype new password for Manager: ************

sw-dr1-taperoom(config)#   <- it stops here

 

Thanks all. We are closer and I appreciate the help. We have multple models of procurves and if we get this one I can figure the rest of them similarly

Prompt lines that terminate with "#", or ">" should automatically be caught by the send_command, so you shouldn't need to add regex for them. I removed the trailing space in the second parameter, not sure if that will make a difference, but it shouldn't be needed.

 

I also removed the ';' at the end of each line, the regular 'return' and indent the next line takes care of things.

 

Try:

 

with NetMRIEasy(**defaults) as easy:
    easy.send_command("conf t")
    easy.send_command("password all", "New password for Operator:")
    easy.send_command("new_op_pass", "Please retype new password for Operator:")
    easy.send_command("new_op_pass", "New password for Manager:")
    easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass", "Please retype new password for Manager:")
    easy.send_command("new_mgr_pass")
    easy.send_command("exit")
    easy.send_command("exit")
    easy.send_command("exit", "Do you want to log out \[y\/n\]\?")
    easy.send_command("y")

Thank Lon. That did the trick. I do need the semi-colon at the end but that is a perl/netmri-ism it seems. Thanks again for your help. We have 500 of these switches and this was a life saver.

I thought this was Python Smiley Happy

It wasn't enough code to tell the difference between Perl and Python for me, lol

 

Glad it worked.
