Dear jeff,

Thanks for your mail. What I mean is the workflow of software has changed totally. The meaning of upgrade is old features should work as it is and new features should be added. But in Fabric 2 my old fab file is not working. Below is my fab file example for your reference.

fabfile example:

#from fabric.api import *

#env[root@host1, root@host2, root@host3:2022, root@host4, root@host5, root@host6]

#def ds():
#    run('df -h')

I used to run this from my terminal like

$ fab ds > disk_space.txt

$ Enter your password :

Now this is not working. I checked some youtube videos about new fabric2 tutorials.

But i am not satisfied with the result fabric 1 was best.

Now i am using parallel-ssh

Can you provide some details about how Fabric 2 isn't working properly? The complication angle is known - we haven't gotten it up to par with Fabric 1 yet in that regard but plan to. But if there are places where the basic use case of running a remote command is broken, that would be good to know!

`pip install fabric==1.14` to install the last version of fabric 1.
If you're using Python 3 you need to either upgrade your fabfile to
fabric2 syntax or for now try to use the fabric3 side project.
