Hi,

I have a file called storage.cfg, and would like to be able to list the directory if it contains a certain line.
sample file:

dir: local
        path /var/lib/vz
        content images,iso,vztmpl,rootdir
        maxfiles 1

nfs: OpenC1-prox
        path /mnt/pve/OpenF-prox
        server 1.1.1.1
        export /mnt/data/openf/ProxNFS
        options vers=3
        content images,iso,vztmpl,rootdir,backup
        maxfiles 2

nfs: OpenC1-voip
        path /mnt/pve/OpenF-voip
        server 1.1.1.1
        export /mnt/data/openf/ProxVoIP
        options vers=3
        content images,iso,vztmpl,backup,rootdir
        maxfiles 1

Open in new window


If I were to do it manually I would look for the lines after a (dir|nfs|iscsi|lvm) and if the content line contains vztmpl, then I need to grab the path, append /template/cache and run ls -l on the directory.  The indentations are tab characters.



ls-l /var/lib/vz/template/cache
ls -l /mnt/pve/OpenF-prox/template/cache
ls -l /mnt/pve/OpenF-voip/template/cache

I don't know where to start with this...

TIA,
Carlos.
