Situation: I have a working shell script on our file server (OSXS Tiger) to connect to a workstation, which is using a portable home directory (phd), and rsync a user's MirrorAgent.log. I'm not that strong of a scripter, but I would like to add other workstations to this script as they are converted to phd's so they can be checked to see if the phd is working as it should (another script down the line). I reason that I need to convert this script to loop through the workstation names. I'm looking for any helpful suggestions for how to do this:
#!/bin/bash # # purpose: to use rsync to synchronize the MirrorAgent.logs of PHD users # # create variables RSYNC="/usr/bin/rsync" ROpts="-az -e ssh" ADMIN="email@example.com" SRC="firstname.lastname@example.org:~/Library/Logs/MirrorAgent.log" DST="/Volumes/Data2/MA_logs/cardenasv/" theLog="/Library/Logs/mySync.log" # # sync MirrorAgent.log time $RSYNC $ROpts $SRC $DST >> $theLog # test to see if sync completed successfully if [ ! $? = 0 ]; then echo "MA_log SYNC NOT COMPLETED!!!" >> $theLog echo "MirrorAgent.log not synced!" | mail -s "MA log sync problem" $ADMIN fi exit 0 # end script
Thanks in advance.
