Logging into Network Devices in V7


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

  1. Open the JAMS Client with Administrator permissions.
  2. Open the Execution Methods Shortcut.Select_Execution_Methods_Shortcut_rev.png

  7. From the Add a Property dialog box, expand the Execute section. In the SSH Prompt property field, 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.
  8. Click Ok to add the Job Property, the SSH Prompt regex, to the SSH Execution Method.SSH_Prompt_Regex_Added_Property_rev.png
