Python Script to SSH and Run Commands

Here’s an example of how you can use Python to SSH into a remote server and run commands.

import paramiko

# create an SSH client object
ssh = paramiko.SSHClient()

# automatically add the remote server's SSH key

# connect to the remote server
ssh.connect(hostname='hostname', username='username', password='password')

# run a command on the remote server
stdin, stdout, stderr = ssh.exec_command('ls')

# print the output of the command

# close the SSH connection

This code uses the paramiko library to handle the SSH connection. The paramiko.SSHClient object is created to handle the connection, and the set_missing_host_key_policy method is used to automatically add the remote server’s SSH key to the client’s known_hosts file. The connect method is used to connect to the remote server, and the exec_command method is used to run a command on the remote server. The output of the command is printed using the method. Finally, the close method is used to close the SSH connection.
