remote_file resource doesn't natively handle scp?


#1

Folks,

I was a little surprised by this – it does http://, ftp://, and file://, but it doesn’t appear to do scp://.

Moreover, there doesn’t seem to be a public cookbook that has been developed to provide this feature.

Is this correct, or have I missed something?

I mean, I can easily write my own bash script to do the quick-n-dirty, but I was hoping there was a standard cross-platform method that had already been implemented in a robust and idempotent manner.

Thanks!

It’s not natively supported. You’ll probably need a library like net-scp to do the protocol if you want to add support.

That did the trick. Thanks!
