[root@central kdump_test]# cat
while read server
  echo -n $server
  ssh -n root@$server "cat /boot/config-`uname -r`|grep -e KEXEC -e CRASH"
 ssh -n root@$server "cat /boot/config-`uname -r`"
  if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
    echo "[ FAIL ]"
    echo "[ done ]"
done < lnazvm_qacore

where lnazvm_qacore consist of server1.qua and server2.qua

Output is:

[root@central# kdump_test]# ./
cat: /boot/config-2.6.18-128.el5: No such file or directory
cat: /boot/config-2.6.18-128.el5: No such file or directory
[ FAIL ]
cat: /boot/config-2.6.18-128.el5: No such file or directory
cat: /boot/config-2.6.18-128.el5: No such file or directory
[ FAIL ]

Is that the result you expected?

Did you mean to use ' instead of "?

the problem is your uname command
with backtick, it's executed first and placed in that command

this means uname -r is executed locally and 2.6.18-128.el5 (your local kernel) is placed there and that kernel is not on the remote system

replace the " with ' only and the command in () and that should run uname on the remote system

ssh -n root@$server '(cat /boot/config-`uname -r`|grep -e KEXEC -e CRASH)'

You don't even need the parentheses.
