has anyone successfully used PLINK or similar to auto logon SSH to the Aruba

Hi,
I would like auto logon to the Aruba Controller (3600 OS 6.4) via SSH and perform few commands. I have following two files:

autologon.bat

plink -v -ssh arubadmin@ip -pw password mycommands.txt

mycommands.txt 

en
password-for-enable
local-userdb-guest add generate-username generate-password expiry duration 180
exit
exit

when I run the autologon.bat, following is what I get

 

 

Connecting to 10.x.x.x port 22
We claim version: SSH-2.0-PuTTY_Release_0.70
Server version: SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.8
We believe remote version has SSH-2 channel request bug
Using SSH protocol version 2
Using Diffie-Hellman with standard group "group14"
Doing Diffie-Hellman key exchange with hash SHA-1
Server also has ssh-dss host key, but we don't know it
Host key fingerprint is:
ssh-rsa 2048 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
Initialised AES-256 CBC client->server encryption
Initialised HMAC-SHA1 client->server MAC algorithm
Initialised AES-256 CBC server->client encryption
Initialised HMAC-SHA1 server->client MAC algorithm
Using username "arubadmin".
Attempting keyboard-interactive authentication
Server refused keyboard-interactive authentication
Sent password
Access granted
Opening session as main channel
Opened main channel
Started a shell/command
Server sent command exit status 1
Disconnected: All channels closed

 

If I just type following then I will be presented with the Controller prompt to type enable i.e. "(Controller-Name) >"

 

plink -v -ssh arubadmin@ip -pw password

All the above files and the plink.exe is on same folder. I have temporarily bypassed the enable, however it throws same error. It seems like it is not running the commands that are in the text file.

Has anyone successfully managed to do this ?

 

I have already gone through the following article:

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

perhaps try it as directed in fireblade's response here

which is different that you're doing (i.e. dont put the exit in the command file and fix up the autologon.bat to match the example in that post)
