Used plink to send command aruba 320 series

Hello community,

i would like to send command autommatically to set up my Access Point, Aruba 320 serie (change data rates, mcs, channel, bandwidth ...).

I use plink.exe to do that :

 

plink.exe -v -ssh -2 -noagent -batch -pw admin -l admin 169.254.172.5 -P 22 {command}

(it's just an example, i tried every solution i found like "-m", "<")

 

I've got this error message :


Looking up host "169.254.172.5"

Is there a way to configure the AP to allowed command sent directly in plink command line?

Is there an other tool or protocol to fix this problem?

You get that error because instant expects an interactive (human) to be logging in.  You can get around it by using an expect script (http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Wireless-Access/Sharing-quot-Expect-quot-script-to-backup-controllers/m-p/85362#M15800) or Airrecorder (requires Aruba Support Login) :  https://support.arubanetworks.com/ToolsResources/tabid/76/DMXModule/514/EntryId/11035/Default.aspx
