Hi Friends,
Need your help to draft shell script which will perform following functions.
Source file, which contains first argument as server name, second argument filesystem type and third is command to take backup.

Filename - servername.txt
Servername:/var/log:arc
Servername:/var/:backup
Servername:/var/log:qfiles
Servername:/var/log:arc

The script will first scan the servername.txt file, and depending on the second and third argument it will execute shell script.
If the second and third argument is “/var/log” and “arc” then it will execute the script 1
If the second and third argument is “/var/” and “backup” then it will execute sscript2
If the second and third argument is “/var/log” and qfiles  then it will excute script3
If the second and third argument is “/var” and “qfiles” then execute script4
Else argument specified is not valid.
Thanks

for spath in $(cut -d: -f2-3 servername.txt)
do
case $spath in
/var/log:arc)
	echo script1 ;;
/var/:backup)
	echo script2 ;;
/var/log:qfiles)
	echo script3 ;;
/var/:qfiles)
	echo script4 ;;
*)
	echo spath not processed. ;;
esac
done

Open in new window

of course instead of echo you'll want to execute the appropriate script.

amick's script will not work to execue script4 should be "/var:qfiles"  hear is a script that actually gets both variables (i.e. the filesystem type on the back up type).  should also be easire to add more filesystems and backup types.
