Need a change in below script:

1) Want to encrypt the mdmdbpwd password how can i do that
2) I have another folder /userin/dev/archive i want to archive 10 days worth of file there with time stamp too.

like
marketing_acct_em.ixf_20140421 and marketing_acct_em.log_20140421
marketing_acct_em.ixf_20140420 and marketing_acct_em.log_20140420
and so on for 10 days after 10 days it should be deleted

#!/bin/sh
#---- Set Environment
mdmdb="EMMDB"
mdmdbuser="MKT_DBO"
mdmdbpwd="time44up"
#-----PATH=$PATH:/db2_src/db2ruin/sqllib/bin
#------export PATH
. /db2_src/db2ruin/sqllib/db2profile

#---- Connect to the Database
db2 connect to $mdmdb user $mdmdbuser using $mdmdbpwd 

#
# Whatever you want to do goes here...
#
db2 "EXPORT TO
/userin/MAT_Integration_dev/marketing_acct_em.ixf OF IXF
MESSAGES
/userin/MAT_Integration_dev/marketing_acct_em.log
select 'x' as id  from SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1"

	

#---- Terminate DB2
db2 terminate

You don't gain any increase in security, cause you need the plain text password.

I'm not familiar with the command line tools of DB2, so an alternative may be using certifications instead. But this solution would be the same as placing your credentials in a separate file, so that you can share your script with others, just place the credentials file in your home.

For archiving, something like
find  /userin/dev/archive -mtime +10 -exec rm '{}' \;

Open in new window

will remove all files older than 10 days in that directory and any subdirectories.

For archive, to move a specific file to the archive directory, add this to the end of your script:

    cp /userin/MAT_Integration_dev/marketing_acct_em.log /userin/dev/archive/marketing_acct_em_$(date '+%Y%m%d_%H%M%S').log

That will copy the named file, add a timestamp (as YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS) to the name, and put it into the archive directory.

The archive removal line I gave earlier doesn't actually look at the time and date in the file name - it relies ion the "last modified" timestamp built into the file information.

What error?

That's not what i wrote - the end of the "find" line should be:

    -exec rm '{}' \;

the single quotes round the {} stop the shell interpreting the braces, and the backslash before the ; does the same (no, I'm not sure why I use two different ways to protect text from the shell, but that just seems to be the way this style of command is always written!)
