Send config over with netmiko to switch

Hello, I can not send a global configuration command to a switch, I get the typical "% Invalid input detected at '^' marker." With netmiko i can not tell exactly where the misinput is. I want to add a user to a bunch of devices. so the command I use is the username xxx privilege x secret x xxxxxxx

yes but it turns out, you need to do:

connect.enable()

before writing any config, like you would in a terminal

Hi there,

Are you using the correct function (send_config_set):

...
commands = ['username {0} privilege {1} secret {2}'] ... result = ssh.send_config_set(commands)
...

...that said, you also have a typo in the word 'privilege'

 

cheers,

Seb.

Hi,

You need to ping the owner of netmiko on github. But make sure that you are
using the right device type in your code.

On a side note, if you are using IOS-XE device, you can use REST to
communicate with the device and post configs.

config_command = ['no username ****']

connect.send_config_set(config_command)

 

thats it, i get that i should use expect_string, but its not possible with send_config_set().

this should be enable and config mode.

OSError: Search pattern never detected in send_command: remove

I get an error from the send_command(), it doesnt pick up on the 'remove', despite

"This operation will remove all username related configurations with same name.Do you want to continue?"

remove being in the prompt.
