I'm trying to use
plink to establish a connection to a remote server and remove an entry in SIP user directory list using the following command:
plink root@<server-ip> -pw pwd serctl ul rm bob
which then asks the following:
The server's host key is not cached. You have no guarantee that the server is the computer you think it is. The server's rsa2 key fingerprint is: ssh-rsa 1024 5d:ae:ae:ad:46:71:30:6d:0c:0e:30:e1:cd:f7:6b:90 If you trust this host, enter "y" to add the key to PuTTY's cache and carry on connecting. If you want to carry on connecting just once, without adding the key to the cache, enter "n". If you do not trust this host, press Return to abandon the connection. Store key in cache? (y/n)
This comes up if the command is executed for the very first time. If I'm executing this command in a script, it invariably asks the same in the interactive prompt, but since no response is given, asks the same a few more times and prints :
Store key in cache? (y/n) Connection abandoned.
From the man page of plink, I did get how to override the interactive prompt using
-batch option, but I want to make sure that the response is positive i.e., a
y. How can I make sure it is
y explicitly? Is there a way I can add this to the command?
