hi,

if you're on the same node as the VM, you can do like this: qm guest exec ID -- ls -la where ls -la can be replaced with whichever command + args you want

Thanks, but the point is not that the ll didn't work. It is that upgrade.sh was "not found", when it is there. And to prove that something is wrong, shouldn't 'which bash' work?

you are quoting the whole binary to be executed, so it tries to execute "which bash", which correctly, it does not find anywhere in $PATH ;) compare the difference between bash -c 'exec "which bash"' and bash -c 'exec which bash'

Thanks Fabian. The syntax I have used to work. How do I exec /home/ubuntu/scripts/upgrade.sh ?
 
qm guest exec 200 /home/ubuntu/scripts/upgrade.sh should work, provided the script is executable and has the right shebang. alternatively, qm guest exec 200 -- /bin/bash /home/ubuntu/scripts/upgrade.sh should work in any case.

Dear all !
I am newbie. I want to config ip for guest with command "echo":
qm guest exec 147 -- echo "IPADDRESS=192.168.1.11" ">>" "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0"
Command run no error, but file ifcfg-eth0 on guest is empty.
What wrong ? Can you help me !
