Hi there,

I'm trying to run this command to get the value assigned to the variable, but it's not working.  I want to check the md5 sum of a file after it has been copied to another Linux server:

md5sumcommandazure=$(ssh oracle@ "md5sum /data/oracle/dpdump/onegeo/ONEGEO20180118-093843.DMP | awk '{ print "'\$1'" }'"'"')

I'm getting this error, what am I missing?

bash: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
bash: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file
