I have access to a linux server where I can sudo to 'foo' like this without a password:
sudo su - foo
Once I am the 'foo' user I am able to run a script like this:
The 'foo_user_script' is only executable by the foo user and not by my user. Thus I can run the script by first changing to the 'foo' user and then running the script.
However, I am trying to automate some processes using the Java SSH client ganymed. Ganymed's faq suggests that to run multiple commands I should use a contruct like:
Session.execCommand("echo Hello && echo again")
I tried something like this, but the second command (the foo_user_script) did not execute:
Session.execCommand("sudo su - foo && /dir/foo_user_script.sh")
I think this doesn't work because su launches a new shell.
Is there any way for me to run the /dir/foo_user_script.sh script in a single command?
"sudo -l" shows me this:
(root) NOPASSWD: /bin/su - foo
Thanks for the help!
