read file script not working

I have created a small script on a RHE5 server that is supposed to read a list of servers from a file 'one at a time' and run some functions then return to read the next server and continue. It is running the first server then stopping.

Also I am trying to create the report file as $hostname.before but not working also.

/mnt;/mnt/sysconf.sh > /mnt/$HOST.before    <---------------

Any help would be appreciated...

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

At first glance, one thing you might want to do is to separate your command by two ampersands (&&) instead of semicolons:

mount lucy:/usr/local/bin/UX_get_cfgs /mn && /mnt/sysconf.sh > /mnt/$HOST.before && umount /mnt

This will force each command to wait for the other to finish successfully.  You might be running into a situation where the final umount is occurring too soon.

Change $HOST to \$HOSTNAME - it worked on my machine.

Also, if the servers.txt contains only dogwood, does it run successfully?  I would verify that the scripts work on each host individually before throwing the entire list out.

I used some of both of your methods and the Servername works now but no loop:

==============START====================
#!/bin/sh
# get_before-cfgs.sh

set -x

while read server
do
echo $server
ssh root@$server "mount lucy:/usr/local/bin/UX_get_cfgs /mnt && /mnt/sysconf.sh > /mnt/$server.before && umount /mnt"
done < servers.txt
=====================STOP============================
=====================START===========================
#!/bin/sh
# get_after-cfgs.sh
set -x

while read server
do
echo $server
ssh root@$server "mount lucy:/usr/local/bin/UX_get_cfgs /mnt && /mnt/sysconf.sh > /mnt/$server.after && umount /mnt'
done < servers.txt

Creates proper filename...but does not loop through rest of servers in servers.txt. Is it because I am calling out another script ...

" /mnt/sysconf.sh > /mnt/$server.before"

Still not looping through the list. All servers are confirmed...

Just out of curiosity, in the script the server list is in the file "servers.txt", and in the original post, the file name has a capital "S" (Servers.txt).  Can you double check that?

Yes,

It is servers.txt
