SSSU shell scripting

I am making a shell script run sssu.
The script looks like this:
SNAP=...
HOST=...
sssu <select manager ... username=administrator password=administrator
select cell ...
add lun 3 vdisk="$SNAP" host="\Hosts\${HOST}"
exit
EOF

I am having troule with those "\" in the name
of host. Is there a better way to preserve the
real meaning of "\", don't try it as a special
character.

Thanks.

Lan

Re: SSSU shell scripting

Yes, isn't it great that they designed it that way? Can you escape the \ using \\ in the symbol assign?
Can you imagine if we used PCs to manage our enterprise systems? ... oops.

Re: SSSU shell scripting

Tried.
like, host="\\Hosts\\${HOST}"
It did not work.
Thanks.

Re: SSSU shell scripting

One problem with your original is that the \$ prevents ${HOST} from being evaluated.

Did you try:
(notice the 2 \\ before $)

HOST=yoyo
SNAP=vol1
cat <select manager ... username=administrator password=administrator
select cell ...
add lun 3 vdisk="$SNAP" host="\Hosts\\${HOST}"
exit
EOF

which produces:

select manager ... username=administrator password=administrator
select cell ...
add lun 3 vdisk="vol1" host="\Hosts\yoyo"
exit


I had to use 'cat' because I don't have access to SSSU right now.

Re: SSSU shell scripting

The trick for "\\" worked for most of cases, but not with the hostname starting with
"n", "t", "a", "f", because
"\n","\t","\a","\f" are escape characters.
It happened that I have two hosts with names
starting with "a" and "f". I guess the solution
is to "hard coded" them into the script.

Thanks to all.
