I have a script that will ftp all archive log files from one machine to another but need to find just the files that have not been copied over and just ftp them.

I am on AIX 5.3

Here is the script I am using...

#!/bin/ksh
set -xv
################################################################ script to ftp archive logs.
###############################################################
export ORACLE_BASE=/app/oracle/product
export ORACLE_ADMIN=/app/oracle/product/admin
export ORACLE_HOME=/app/oracle/product/db10.2
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/app/oracle/product/db10.2/lib
#
###############################################################
#
cd /oradata/prod/logarch1
echo  `date +%m%d%y-%H:%M` > /home/oracle/arch/ftp_arch.log
for next_file in  $(find /oradata/prod/logarch1 -name 'prod_arc*.log'  -print   )
do
ftp -ivn servername>> /home/oracle/arch/ftp_arch.log  <<eof
user username password
binary
cd /oradata/prod/logarch1
put $(basename ${next_file})
bye
eof
done
echo  `date +%m%d%y-%H:%M` >> /home/oracle/arch/ftp_arch.log

hi, do you need to use FTP or are other programs an option as well? i'm thinking of rsync instead

In that case, I'd be doing this in a few steps:

- get remote file list using FTP
- get local file list
- diff remote and local file list (call this to_ftp)
- put files that are in the to_ftp list to remote location

It will require some scripting though...

I don't have time to write you a complete script but this is basic idea:
FTPHOST=servername
FTPSRCDIR=/oradata/prod/logarch1
FTPDSTDIR=/oradata/prod/logarch1
FTPLIST_LOC=local_archive_files
FTPLIST_REM=remote_archive_files
FTPLIST_DIFF=files_to_ftp
FTPTMP=temporary_ftp_script

# get local list, output to file
ls ${FTPSRCDIR}/prod_arc*.log > ${FTPLIST_LOC}

# ftp to get remote list, output to file
ftp ${FTPHOST} <<EOFTP > /dev/null
ls ${FTPDSTDIR} > ${FTPLIST_REM}
quit
EOFTP

# diff list_prev and list, output to diff_list
diff ${FTPLIST_LOC} ${FTPLIST_REM} | grep "^>"  | awk -- '{print $10}' > ${FTPLIST_DIFF}

# create FTP script to get files
echo "ftp ${FTPHOST} <<EOFTP > /dev/null" > ${FTPTMP}
echo "bin" >> ${FTPTMP}
echo "cd ${FTPDSTDIR}" >> ${FTPTMP}
echo "lcd ${FTPSRCDIR}" >> ${FTPTMP}
for cur_fil in `cat ${FTPLIST_DIFF}`
do
	echo "get \"${cur_fil}\"" >> ${FTPTMP}
done
echo "bye" >> ${FTPTMP}
echo "EOFTP" >> ${FTPTMP}

# calling FTP script
echo sh ${FTPTMP}

Open in new window

You can use this to build your script, note the echo on the last line: scripts is not executed unless you remove the echo - test on a test server first in any case :)

Note that the script assumes that you have the FTP details in a .netrc file (not secure btw).
