JAMS can log into network devices such as NetApp Servers or Cisco Routers and Switches using a modified version of the SSH Execution Method.
To accomplish this, create a new Execution Method for the device in question. Then, create a JAMS Job using the new Execution Method.
How to Create an SSH Execution Method to Log into a Network Device
- Open the JAMS Client with Administrator permissions.
- Open the Execution Methods Shortcut from the Welcome to JAMS page.
- Click on the Add button to add a new Execution Method.
- Name the Execution Method, select Base Method SSH, Edit After Adding, and click Ok.
- The Properties dialog for the newly created Execution Method appears. Click the Properties tab. Select Routine as the Method Type. Leave Extension blank.
- Select the Job Properties tab, and click the Add icon to add a new Job Property.
- From the Add a Property dialog box, scroll to the Execute property. Enter the Regular Expression (regex) that reflects the SSH Prompt of your device. In the example below, we use regex:+[$#] $ to search for characters on a line ending in "$#". Your regex may vary.
- Click Ok to add the Job Property, the SSH Prompt regex, to the SSH Execution Method.
- Save and Close the Execution Method.
- Restart the JAMS Client. The next time you Create a Job, you will see the new SSH Execution Method, which you may select to connect to your network device.
