AIX 5.3 Shell Script

Hi, nemws1 has been helping with this so far, please allow this expert to continue this support.

I have a script below that gives me the results of the last command in a file that is emailed to me. Right now I am using sendmail to exectute the mail and using uuencode to help attach the file. When the script ssh to different servers I also need to be able to get the results of this command 'tail -1 /directory/filename' to show up on the report. I need the results to show up on the same column as the results I am getting when I run teh script now.

servername  user   date   time   duration   results of the file.

Can this script be altered to fit what I am trying to accomplish?

#!/bin/bash
time_start=`date +%s`
for i in $(cat master/store_numbers)
do
    ssh -o BatchMode=yes XXXX.$i 'last' |
    egrep -v "^(reboot|shutdown|root|nopriv|co1)" | \
    awk '{print $1","$4" "$5","$6","$9}' | \
    head -1 | \
    xargs -I% echo "$i,%"
done
time_end=`date +%s`
time_exec=`expr $(( $time_end - $time_start ))`
echo "Execution time is $time_exec seconds"

This is the entire script and it works fine thanks to nemws1 but the results is not showing me all the information I need. My report is displaying line 1 but I need for it to display like line 2.

1.        user      date      time      duration      results from tail -1  /directory/filename      
2. server#       user      date      time      duration      results from tail -1  /directory/filename      

#!/bin/bash
# Delete old report and prepare new one
rm -f /directory/filename.*
OUTPUT=/directory/filename.csv
DATE=`date`
time_start=`date +%s`
for i in $(cat directory/filename)
do
    ssh -o BatchMode=yes XXXX.$i "
    REL=\`tail -1 /directory/filename\`;
    last |
    egrep -v \"^(reboot|shutdown|root|nopriv|co1)\" |
    awk '{print \$1\",\"\$4\" \"\$5\",\"\$6\",\"\$9}' |
    head -1 |
    xargs -I% echo \"\$i,%,\$REL\"
    "
done > $OUTPUT
time_end=`date +%s`
time_exec=`expr $(( $time_end - $time_start ))`
echo "Execution time is $time_exec seconds"

Hmm... I wonder how the servername is getting dropped.  Let me do a quick test.

I changed this

xargs -I% echo \"\$i,%,\$REL\"
 
to  

xargs -I% echo $i,%,\$REL\"
 
and it showed back up. If you post the entire code with what I changed at the end I will accept your solution. Thanks so much for your help with this.

So this worked?

#!/bin/bash
# Delete old report and prepare new one
rm -f /directory/filename.*
OUTPUT=/directory/filename.csv
DATE=`date`
time_start=`date +%s`
for i in $(cat directory/filename)
do
    ssh -o BatchMode=yes XXXX.$i "
    REL=\`tail -1 /directory/filename\`;
    last |
    egrep -v \"^(reboot|shutdown|root|nopriv|co1)\" |
    awk '{print \$1\",\"\$4\" \"\$5\",\"\$6\",\"\$9}' |
    head -1 |
    xargs -I% echo \"$i,%,\$REL\"
    "
done > $OUTPUT
time_end=`date +%s`
time_exec=`expr $(( $time_end - $time_start ))`

You have to remove the first '\' in line 15 and it works perfectly. Can you post again with the correction and i will accept the solution.


xargs -I% echo "$i,%,\$REL\"

nemws1Commented:
Weird!  Can you double-check.  If I do that, the command will end early.  Can you cut-paste your code again (like you, I want the correct solution posted)

I copied it directly off the server im using it on. i only changed where you see 'directory, folder, filename, xxxx, co1, subject and email address. It just finished running on all of my servers as I typed this. It gave me the exact output that I needed. Completed on over 200 servers.

The quote in the xargs command looks funny to me, but if its working, it's working! ;-)

#!/bin/bash

# clean any old output files and initialize a new one
