/root/test.sh on a remote server, which has the following content:
On the remote server, I get the following output:
# ./test.sh Fri Dec 18 07:41:10 EST 2015 # bash <(cat /root/test.sh) Fri Dec 18 07:41:23 EST 2015
However, if I try to run the same commands from my local machine, I get the following result:
$ ssh root@remote_server /root/test.sh Fri Dec 18 07:44:32 EST 2015 $ ssh root@remote_server bash <(cat /root/test.sh) cat: /root/test.sh: No such file or directory bash: /dev/fd/63: No such file or directory
So what's the problem of the last run? You might find it weird to run a script like this
bash <(cat /root/test.sh). The reason I did it is because it is a simplified version of my real situation. My real code is to download a Bash script from the Internet and run it locally. I have a lot of machines to run, with different parameters, so I'm trying to run them from my local computer.
