My goal is to remote to a server through ssh, start a screen, start a script, let the script run, and exit the ssh session while keeping the screen running its own python script. This is what I have:
ssh -t myuser@hostname screen python somepath.py -s 'potato'
The problem with this is, after I run it, I have to manually ctrl + a + d, and exit out of the ssh session myself. Is there a way to do it all in one go without needing human interaction?
EDIT: I have tried the suggested method of using -dm
This is what I'm testing to make it easier to see:
ssh -t user@host screen "top"
remotely I see this:
user 2557 0.0 0.2 27192 1468 ? Ss 13:35 0:00 SCREEN top user 2562 0.0 0.1 11740 932 pts/0 S+ 13:35 0:00 grep --color=auto SCREEN
but if I do:
ssh -t user@host screen -dm "top"
I immediately get a Connection to host closed. And nothing in my grep
ps aux | grep SCREEN user 2614 0.0 0.1 11740 932 pts/0 S+ 13:36 0:00 grep --color=auto SCREEN
