Bash Script to audit Xen Servers

Hi,

I have been working on a script found at the following location;
http://www.crucial.com.au/blog/2013/02/08/getting-to-know-your-xenserver/

I am having issues with the syntax and I can't seem to come up with a solution as to why I am getting the errors. I have exported the code into shellcheck.net where I am getting stuck is on line 13
 eval array=($(xe vm-list params=uuid is-control-domain=false|grep “uuid”|cut -c 17-))

on this line I am getting a error of "Parsing stopped here because of parsing errors." And "(' is invalid here. Did you forget to escape it?"
 There are other errors within the script but I think I might have got them like "hv_name appears unused. Verify it or export it". Although, bash scripting isn't something I have much to do with on a daily basis. I am just stuck as to why this is happening. Any pointers in the right direction would be really appreciated.

Try replacing those strange ” and “ quotes with normal " quotes, for example:

sr_name=$(xe vdi-list  uuid=$b params=sr-name-label|grep “sr-name-label”|cut -c 26-)

Open in new window


would become:

sr_name=$(xe vdi-list  uuid=$b params=sr-name-label|grep "sr-name-label"|cut -c 26-)

Open in new window


Also: can you show sample output of that xe command?
