passing password having special character in "vlt rcp" command

Avatar

Level 4

Hi all,

 
I am using "vlt rcp" command to copy content from one CRX to another.
http://cq-ops.tumblr.com/post/43179911102/how-to-efficiently-copy-large-amounts-of-content
 
vlt rcp -b 100 -r -u -n http://admin:admin@localhost:4502/crx/-/jcr:root/content/dam/JJK-Folder-1 http://admin:admin@localhost:4503/crx/-/jcr:root/content/dam/JJK-Folder-1
 
My password has special character "@" (for example : admin@123 )
 
So if i use my password in the "vlt rcp" command then it fails (see in bold)
vlt rcp -b 100 -r -u -n http://admin:admin@123@localhost:4502/crx/-/jcr:root/content/dam/JJK-Folder-1 http://admin:admin@123@localhost:4503/crx/-/jcr:root/content/dam/JJK-Folder-1
 
Is there any way to escape special charcater in password or update the above command so that password with special character goes fine.
 
thanks in advance.

Hi rohitspathak123

Not Sure but you can try

------------------------------------

You can try %encoding while creating the command.

Eg. let say for "admin@123" we could write admin%40123. //@ has hex value of 40 so we escaped it as %40. This is the technique use by many browsers for handling Unicode characters.

 

Thanks and Regards

Hi Kautuk,

Awsome !

Thanks so much for your quick reply. Yes it worked. I am now able to successfully run the command after replacing "@" by "%40".
