Bash Script
 
Hello,

I am taking a Linux class right now, and my teacher has requested me to write a bash script. I have been given IP address of the server to create virtual machine on the server. I need someone to help me with this project by getting me started on this project. I have no clue right now how to start this project. Any help will be appreciated. Here is the requirement:

Write a bash script to create a virtual machine running Scientific Linux 6.3, x86_64 architecture. The
image should include the
telnet client
package, the
ftp
package, and the
httpd
package. The virtual
image should use 1GB of RAM, one virtual CPU, use a 4GB qcow2 disk image, connect to the
“virtual_bridge” network bridge using a random MAC address and DHCP boot protocol. The image
name should be <user name>. The image should run on an IBM blade server with a Scientific
Linux host operating system and KVM hypervisor.
You instructor will provide connection credentials in class.
The script must contain:

a title block

conditional debugging output

variables

ample comments

use of positional parameters to enable debugging and the image




#!/bin/bash

We will be happy to HELP you...so post what you've written/tried so far, and where you're stuck. Otherwise, there are lots of very easily-found bash tutorials:
http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prog-Intro-HOWTO.html
http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/

...start with those. As with any programming task in any language, you have to break it down into steps. Think about each task you have to perform...those commands are what's going to make up your bash script. Start there.

Thank you. I just wrote my first hello world script. It executed correctly. I have three weeks to complete this project and I will do my best to get help from the links you provided. Is there anyway you can call me if you are in the USA? I just want to make sure I get this task done and not waste time. My phone number is 336-905-9309. Thanks again.

you are better off just posting what you have along with either
Code:

bash -xvv OR sh -xvv
when you run a script that is not working properly for you.

See also this tutorial http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz

I would also (normally) expect that the Lecturer wouldn't ask you to do anything he/she hasn't already covered the core of in class.

You may have blank lines in bash IF(!) the cmd does not continue onto the next line.
Even using '\' only appends the next (physical) line, not the next useful/logical line.
Try removing the blank lines starting at virt-install ...

See also the useful links you've been given above; you need to read them.
