How to run sudo with paramiko? (Python)

What I've tried:


  1. invoke_shell() then channel.send su then send the password resulted in not being root

  2. invoke_shell() then channel.exec_command resulted in Channel Closed error

  3. _transport.open_session() then channel.exec_command resulted in not being in root

  4. invoke_shell() then write to the stdin and flush it resulted in not being in root


Answer

check this example out:

ssh.connect('127.0.0.1', username='jesse', 
    password='lol')
stdin, stdout, stderr = ssh.exec_command(
    "sudo dmesg")
stdin.write('lol\n')
stdin.flush()
data = stdout.read.splitlines()
for line in data:
    if line.split(':')[0] == 'AirPort':
        print line

Example found here with more explanations: http://jessenoller.com/2009/02/05/ssh-programming-with-paramiko-completely-different/

Hope it helps!
