    Hi folks, first of all I need to say that I'm not a programmer, but I need to do something based on programming....
    My problem is that I need to modify the DNS servers in almost 1000 nanostation equipments. I have access to them through ssh and I want to make a script to acomplish the task. I already made a file with the ip addresses of all CPE's (named client.txt). I think my script can begin like this:

    for host in $(cat client.txt);
    ssh Administrador@$host sameforall;
    sed 's/x.x.x.x/y.y.y.y /etc/resolve.conf;
    sed 's/w.w.w.w/z.z.z.z /etc/resolve.conf;

    # here I restart network service but I don't have the command yet

    y.y.y.y and z.z.z.z are the new DNS servers and x.x.x.x w.w.w.w the old ones

    I know this is far away to be correct, but I need somebody help me. The first problem I'm going to find is that ssh prompts me to put the given servers ssh key to my known_hosts file, how can I solve this???

    Can anybody please help me??? Thanks in advance.

    You'd probably want something like this:

    #!/usr/bin/env bash
    while read i; do
        ssh Administrator@${i} << EOF
            sed 's/x.x.x.x/y.y.y.y "/etc/resolv.conf"
            sed 's/w.w.w.w/z.z.z.z "/etc/resolv.conf"
            systemctl restart networking
    done < "client.txt"

  3. You can apparently setup password less Login Using SSH Keygen. You dont need to put password each time script runs.
    A quick google give idea regarding how to setup : Refer

    Also if you just need to update new namserver IP, why not use echo?
    echo "nameserver" > /etc/resolve.conf
    echo "nameserver" >> /etc/resolve.conf

    You can use sed or a simple echo. But do not use /etc/resolve.conf. Better use /etc/resolv.conf

    thanks for your replies... I'll try the echo solution and post results.

    hi @24x7servermanagement !, when I try to create .ssh Directory on the remote host (You can apparently setup password less Login Using SSH Keygen) it ask me for the password, so I'm back to square one...
    In the other hand the echo solution worked fine!! Now I have to figure out how can I solve the password issue (I'm thinking in sshpass maybe). I'll post results.
