I am trying to reboot a Cisco device using net::appliance::session library. But even the code doesn't give en error the device doesn't reboot. This is the two lines I am using:
$session->cmd(String => 'Reload',Match => ['/Proceed/'], ); $session->cmd(String => "\n", Match => ['//'],);
In the Cisco shell a reload command is given like this:
test#reload Proceed with reload? [confirm] Connection closed by foreign host.
This thread in the cpan forum also tells me to do this way. I think there is a problem with carriage returns and confirm dialogs. Because when I try to create a directory it works fine:
$session->cmd(String => 'mkdir',Match => ['/Create dire.*/'] ); $session->cmd(String => 'test',Match => ['//'] );
The equivelant of this in Cisco shell:
test#mkdir Create directory filename []? test Created dir flash:test
But when I try to delete this directory which needs a carriage return as confirmation the scripts fails again.
$session->cmd(String => 'rmdir asd',Match => ['/Remove directory.*/']) +; $session->cmd(String => '\n' ,Match => ['/Delete flash.*/'] ); $session->cmd(String => '\n');
The equivelant in Cisco is this:
test#rmdir test Remove directory filename [test]? Delete flash:test? [confirm] Removed dir flash:test
So I think the problem isn't with reload command. But the problem is sending carriage returns as confirmation. I have tried \n \r \n\r \r\n and empty string but they didn't work. Any ideas?
