I do not have
sudo su over a username, however I have its password. I want to have an script that passes the password and gives me an interactive bash.
I have tried this:
echo mypassword | su - otherusr Password: Last login: Wed Jul 25 12:09:38 COT 2018 [myuser@myserver ~]$
It returns me to myuser and I do not have an interactive bash with the other user.
I tried also:
echo mypassword | su -c "/bin/bash" - otherusr echo mypassword | su -s "/bin/bash" - otherusr echo mypassword | su -c "/bin/bash -i" - otherusr Password: bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device bash: no job control in this shell bash-4.2$ exit
How can I do that? I want to create an script that returns me an interactive bash session with another user; not just execute a command with another user.
