I need to store information for rebuilt, recovery & moveing systems.

We are on a closed network so we can not add software, just scripts.

see if you can spot any good stuff I have missed.

#! /bin/bash

hostname=${HOSTNAME}
output=output.txt

#########
#       The purpose of this function it to recive a shell command string (SS)
#       Echo a begin marker with hostanme and (SS)
#       Echo the results of (SS)
#       Echo a stop marker just like the start marker
#       except the start marker has "b" and the end has "e"
#
#########



# clear out old output.txt
echo > ${output}

function doo(){

echo "tqf####~"$hostname"~${1}~b~####" >> ${output}
echo  >> ${output}

${1}  >> ${output}

echo  >> ${output}
echo "tqf####~"$hostname"~${1}~e~####" >> ${output}
echo  >> ${output}

}



doo "/bin/df"
doo "/bin/netstat"
doo "/bin/ps"
doo "/bin/uname"
doo "/sbin/arp"

Can you add a satellite server?
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/RHNetwork/satellite/4.1.0/s1-intro-sat.html

You would then be able to bring software for update or configure a new system with the matching packages.
netstat -a and netstat -an merely will indicate what connections exist at the time of the run.

Are these systems monitored via SNMP?
You could use that by setting up an OID that will run a specific command to generate output.

You are running commands that deals with a snapshot of what is running on the system.

Are these systems monitored via SNMP or nagios?
rpm -qa will take a snapshot of installed packages and their versions.

The other alternative is to actually setup a backup server bacula.org.

instead of running mount, cat /etc/fstab
