vb.net has a steep learning curve, so please bare with me.
I am trying to create a program where you can select multiple Linux hosts, then select a bash script (which already exists on the Linux hosts), and click a button to execute the script on all the hosts. I've managed to get vb.net to read from XML files, and list all the available commands and all the available hosts. I've also found a way to connect on a host using Renci.SshNet.
What I need to do now, is configure a button, to see which hosts I have selected, and which bash script I have selected, and run the script on those hosts.
This is the GUI.
And this is the code
Basically, the "connInfo" variable fields must be populated by the "Hosts" DataGridView selection on the GUI, and the "sshClient.RunCommand" fields must be populated by the "Commands" DataGridView selection on the GUI. Another problem I must solve, is how do I handle multiple hosts selections?
Public Class SSHCommander
Dim cmd As Renci.SshNet.SshCommand
Dim hostsPath As String = "hosts.xml"
Dim commandsPath As String = "commands.xml"
Dim connInfo As New Renci.SshNet.PasswordConnectionInfo("hostname", "22", "user", "pass")
Private Sub SSHCommander_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
CommandsGridView.DataSource = CommandsDataSet
CommandsGridView.DataMember = "commands"
HostsGridView.DataSource = HostsDataSet
HostsGridView.DataMember = "hosts"
Private Sub execute_command_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles execute_command.Click
Dim sshClient As New Renci.SshNet.SshClient(connInfo)
cmd = sshClient.RunCommand("selected command must be here")
rtbresult.Text = cmd.Result
