comment script calling script as other user
all of your 1-5 are ruled out by the fact that the command runs when the script called from a root terminal. but fails if called by daemontools without a tty. but thanks

comment script calling script as other user
mogga, the ssh manual sheds no light on why host key verfication fails when supervise call my script, but runs perfectly when i call it from the terminal. thanks for your help

comment script calling script as other user
dear mogga, I got one problem that needs to be solved: run a script as another user (using that users environment, from a root script with no tty standard in). I just presented my 4 different attempts at solving it that all fail.

comment script calling script as other user
thanks for your attention. the script as in the OP is the /service/training/run executable, and i switch on the service with svc -u /service/training. supervise then launches the run script which fails since su needs tty stdin which is missing, so i get 'standard in must be tty' in my /var/log/training_service.log (and of course my training command is not run. hope this explains the context.
