Workflow and UNIX (via SSH) - UPDATED
This short video shows how you can run dynamic commands against a UNIX or Linux server, directly from your Symantec Workflow process. The commands are run using the SSH protocol (via the command line plink.exe from Quest), and so all communications between the Workflow and UNIX server are secure. The video walks you through a simple example to run a UNIX command on the target server, illustrating the flexibility of Symantec Workflow to interact with even non-Windows environments.
UPDATE: The video was updated to demonstrate how to bring standard result and error information from the UNIX command back into your Workflow process. For example, if you run a command to list all of the folders in a directory, this video shows how to capture the result in your Workflow process. It also shows which version of plink is needed to accomplish this, and exactly how to install it. You can download the correct version of plink from here: http://rc.quest.com/downloads.php?release=Quest-PuTTY-0.60_q1
