Running script on remote server not possible?

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've created a script to run through some gui steps of winscp in order to retrieve backups.

Because of some firewall restrictions it has to be done like this.

so:

Server A (including the script) connects to server B

it seems it doesn't run when there's nobody connected to server A

it also appears as if the script isn't paused but just locks up.

It does run flawless when you connect to the server or when you execute it from your own pc.

This is however not an option :-(

kind regards

Jochem

excuse me for my simple-minded programming, it's been a year or 3 :D

This is the code...

can I add something to force execution?

For $i=10 to 90 Step 10

;backupping all clusters using winSCP

;open connection

WinActivate("WinSCP")

sleep(200)

send("3.210.123.")

send($i)

send("{TAB}user{TAB}password{ENTER}")

sleep(500)

send("{space}")

sleep(3000)

;clicking left pane for "local", executing commands

MouseClick("left", 400, 450)

sleep(1000)

send("{CTRLDOWN}o{CTRLUP}")

sleep(500)

send("C:Backup clusters"& $i &"{ENTER}")

sleep(500)

;clicking right pane for "remote", executing commands

MouseClick("left", 800, 500)

sleep(1000)

send("{CTRLDOWN}o{CTRLUP}")

sleep(500)

send("/home/bu/{ENTER}")

sleep(500)

;synchronize

send("{CTRLDOWN}s{CTRLUP}")

WinWaitActive("Synchronize")

sleep(500)

send("{ENTER}")

sleep(500)

$file = FileOpen ("bulogs.txt",1)

$date = @year & @mon & @mday & "_" & @hour & ":" & @min

$backupfail = false

If WinExists("Synchronization") Then

FileWrite($file, $date & " - Starting Backup sync for cluster " & $i & @CRLF)

Else

FileWrite($file, $date & " - Backup sync for cluster " & $i & " failed: no backup files found" & @CRLF)

$backupfail = true

EndIf

FileClose($file)

;sleep(500)

send("{ENTER}")

;30 seconds to complete

sleep(30000)

$file = FileOpen ("bulogs.txt",1)

$date = @year & @mon & @mday & "_" & @hour & ":" & @min

If WinExists("Synchronization") or $backupfail Then

FileWrite($file, $date & " - Backup sync for cluster " & $i & " failed: no remote backup file found" & @CRLF)

send("{esc}")

Else

FileWrite($file, $date & " - Finished Backup sync for cluster " & $i & " succesfully" & @CRLF)

EndIf

FileClose($file)

sleep(500)

;deleting backups stored on the cluster

send("{CTRLDOWN}a{CTRLUP}")

sleep(500)

send("{DEL}")

sleep(500)

send("{ENTER}")

sleep(1500)

;starting new connection

send("{CTRLDOWN}n{CTRLUP}")

Next

;closing winscp

send("{esc}")

send("{altdown}{F4}{altup}")

sleep(500)

send("{space}")

Exit

Check out the FAQ entry on why this doesn't work correctly.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Could you perhaps assist me in analysing the first window?

http://www.freebits.nl/view.php?filename=532controlclick.jpg

How do I controlsend in this field?

I tried

Controlsend("WinSCP","",1706432,"testtext") but no go? :D

Edit: ok never mind the control click just changes, gonna see further on how to retrieve the ID first

Use the Advanced Class information instead of the ControlID number to send to.
