Script Error on AIX

When I run the below command, The output is below

$ sudo /admin/bin/rsh aixdev21 lslpp -l |grep splunk
  aixdev21:
  splunk.db2.rte          2.2.3.2  COMMITTED  SPLUNK v2 Client

So Splunk is a customized tool in our environment, I am planning to get an output of splunk versions across the environment and I am expecting the output to be

- HOSTNAME    SPLUNK-VERSION    OSLEVEL

So I went ahead and wrote a script

####################################################
for i in `cat $SERVER_LIST`
do
ping -c 2 -w 1 $i >> /dev/null
       if [ $? -eq 1 ]; then
        echo "$i did not respond"
       else
        SPLUNK = `sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i "lslpp -l|grep splunk" | grep Client | grep -v $i | awk '{print $2}'`
        OSLEVEL = `sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i  "OSLEVEL = `oslevel -s`"`
        echo "$i   $SPLUNK    $OSLEVEL"
         fi
exit 0

############################################################

But I am getting an error running, The error is ksh cannot identify SPLUNK and OSLEVEL...
So can someone help me with the script...

Thanks
Steve

Please don't use spaces around the equal signs "=" when assigning variables:

SPLUNK=`sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i "lslpp -l|grep splunk" | grep Client | grep -v $i | awk '{print $2}'`

The second command will not work. Try this:

OSLEVEL=`sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i  oslevel -s`

I, personally, do prefer the $( ) notation:

SPLUNK=$(sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i "lslpp -l|grep splunk" | grep Client | grep -v $i | awk '{print $2}')

OSLEVEL=$(sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i  oslevel -s)

I am able to run the SPLUNK and OSLEVEL commands but when I do a "echo $SPLUNK" or echo $OSLEVEL" I am not able to get the output

The commands as posted in my last comment should work just fine.

What is the output if you don't capture it in a variable?


i=myhost
sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i "lslpp -l|grep splunk" | grep Client | grep -v $i | awk '{print $2}'

and

i=myhost
sudo /admin/bin/rsh $i  oslevel -s

Is your rsh indeed in /admin/bin ? Is this a special setup for sudo?
