Line 204 in is wrong on 2 accounts.
1. Its indented one too many times and will never be executed.
2. It should actually be: self.ssh = self.ctrl_be.editor.sshConnection

As the code is now, self.ssh will never get set and always be None.
Thus, dirpath will never be set and line 212 will result in an error.

This only occurs when connecting to a Windows instance of MySQL Server over SSH.

How to repeat:
Using MySQL Workbench, connct to a Windows instance of MySQL Server over SSH.
Select Server Status from the Navigator|administration tab.
Get error.

Suggested fix:
        if self.ctrl_be.server_profile.uses_ssh:
            if self.ctrl_be.editor.sshConnection.isConnected() == 0:
                if self.ctrl_be.editor.sshConnection.connect() != 0:
                    raise OperationCancelledError("Could not connect to SSH server")
            self.ssh = self.ctrl_be.editor.sshConnection

Note that "self.ssh = self.ctrl_be.editor.sshConnection" aligns with "if self.ctrl_be.editor.sshConnection.isConnected() == 0:"

Hello Brian White,

Thank you for the report and feedback.
Observed this on Win10 using WB 8.0.18 with tcp/ip over ssh connection to MySQL Server running on windows host(local in my case).
