My company has automated AD integration via puppet. Long story short, servers were joining the wrong domain. I wrote a bash script to remove them from the current domain but my remote sudo commands are not working. Additionally, I am trying to remove the AD_joined file in /etc. The script shows that the file is still present, but when I ssh to the boxes, the file is actually removed and the 'sudo adleave' command also works fine. What am I doing wrong? FYI, root logins are disabled, so I am stuck with sudo.



IP=`cat prod_ips.txt`
check=`ls /etc | grep ^AD`
for i in $IP;
echo '------------------------------------------------------------';
echo "Connecting to $i";
echo ""
ssh -t -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o ConnectTimeout=3 -o            PasswordAuthentication=no $i "sudo rm -f /etc/AD_joined; sudo adleave --force;"

echo $check
if [ -z $check ]; then
  echo "AD_joined file removed. Server should join correct domain after next   puppet run!";
  echo "File still present, something went wrong";

echo '------------------------------------------------------------';
echo "";

Sample output:

Connecting to <IP>

sudo: adleave: command not found
Connection to <IP> closed.
File still present, something went wrong

    can you post the difference between ssh -t -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o ConnectTimeout=3 -o PasswordAuthentication=no $example_remote_host "echo $PATH" as well as ssh $example_remote_host followed by which adleave as well as echo $PATH? Seems like adleave is in a component of PATH that's only loaded by login shells. – jayhendren Dec 9 '16 at 16:38

    Call the full path to adleave – Jeff Schaller Dec 9 '16 at 16:48

  • @Christopher the path for adleave is /usr/sbin/adleave. I also did sudo env and /usr/sbin is included in $PATH for sudo. At this point, I'm thinking there is some other environment setting, profile script or maybe something in PAM that is overriding this. – N.M.D Dec 9 '16 at 19:52

Reading comments to your initial post: have you tried using /usr/sbin/adleave in your script, instead of adleave.
