Bamboo SSH Task - Run sudo commands

I set up a bamboo box and am working on a deployment task. If I try to run any sudo command from the SSH task, I get the following error: "sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified Sorry, try again."

I have read through some fixes:

  • Remove the following line in sudoers file: Defaults requiretty
    • sudoers file on server does not have this.
  • Run ssh with -t command
    • Do not know how to achieve this in bamboo.
  • Use RSA tokens to connect bamboo server with remote server.
    • Got the token (user ssh-keygen -t rsa), however, I get the following error:
      • There is something wrong with your private key: java.io.IOException: Could not read key pair from: [PrivateKeyStringResource]

Anybody know how I can acomplish any of those tasks. I need to be able to run some sudo commands on remote server.

Thanks.

If you using putty gen to create your private key. You need to save it in open ssh format. Conversions -> Export OpenSSH Key

I too am having this issue and have read through these fixes with the same results.

Also experiencing this issue.

Any luck on solving this?
