Hi All,


I have a requirement to automate ksh script which is located in remote linux server. The shell script is used to call PL/SQL script. I have done automation of PL/SQL scripts but for this requirement i can't run PL/SQL directly since it requires root privilege. Manual testing team uses putty to run ksh file and also they need to use sudo su to run it with root privileges. I tried putty and plink command line utilities and i was able to automate it to some extent but i got stuck in automating sudo su command as it prompts for a password. Has anyone of you automated sudo su command using devtest? Could you please help me if there is any other approach?
