Unix/Linux System

The Unix/Linux system provides the functionality to execute commands, scripts and session-based activities against a system or network device using SSH or Telnet. While SSH is more secure than telnet, many environments use a telnet connection and using a SSH connection against such devices will not be possible. The Unix/Linux system allows you the flexibility to execute against those devices.
The Unix/Linux system allows Action Orchestrator to run commands and script activities on a system or network device that has Secure Shell (SSH) enabled. The Unix/Linux system also contains three session-based activities that allow you to open new SSH/Telnet sessions and interact with the previously opened sessions.
SSH and Telnet leverage the same command execution activities differentiated by the target type they are deployed against. For example, an IOS target can have SSH or telnet optionally configured. Action Orchestrator requires SFTP to be configured on the Unix/Linux system.
