ssh not recognized as a command when executed from python using subprocess?


This is my code -

import subprocess import sys HOST="xyz3511.uhc.com" # Ports are handled in ~/.ssh/config since we use OpenSSH COMMAND="uptime" ssh = subprocess.Popen(["ssh", "%s" % HOST, COMMAND], shell=True, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE) result = ssh.stdout.readlines() if result == []: error = ssh.stderr.readlines() print (sys.stderr, "ERROR: %s" % error) else: print (result)

and this is the error I'm getting-


ERROR: [b"'ssh' is not recognized as an internal or external command,\r\n", b'operable program or batch file.\r\n'].


Not sure what I'm doing wrong over here. Also, I haven't mentioned any port. All I want is to use subprocess and connect to remote server, execute a simple command like ls. Python version is 3.x.


Apparently this happens in python3. Workaround found at this link: https://gist.github.com/bortzmeyer/1284249

system32 = os.path.join(os.environ['SystemRoot'], 'SysNative' if platform.architecture()[0] == '32bit' else 'System32') ssh_path = os.path.join(system32, 'OpenSSH/ssh.exe') out1, err1 = Popen([ssh_path, "pi@%s"%self.host, "%s"%cmd], shell=False, stdout=PIPE, stderr=PIPE).communicate()
