Bash Script wont execute if called from a remote Windows PC


Hi Everyone!

Im trying to run a certain bash script in a linux server from a Windows PC using plink, but the script in Linux doesnt seems to run. The First script that will be called is the plucount_all.sh and then will call and pass the parameter to plucount.sh, after that from plucount_all.sh, it will call another script which is plucomp.sh

Bash Script
/Code
DATA_BACKUP_DIR=$LINUX/tmp/ToolsData/PLUCount
LOGFILE=$DATA_BACKUP_DIR/Data.log

mv $DATA_BACKUP_DIR/*.log
mv $DATA_BACKUP_DIR/Backup

if [ ! -d "$DATA_BACKUP_DIR" ];
then
mkdir $DATA_BACKUP_DIR
fi

rm $LOGFILE
rm $DATA_BACKUP_DIR/Data.log

START=01
END=63

for (( c=$START; c<=$END; c++ ))
do
plucount.sh $c >> $LOGFILE
done

rm /home/linux/tmp/Tools/log/pluserverhasrun

(cd /home/linux/tmp/Tools/ && ./plucomp.sh)

exit 0

======================================

Windows Command using plink
/Code
plink 1.1.1.1 -l user -pw pass bash -m COM.txt

=======================================

COM.txt contains
/Code
cd /home/linux/tmp/Tools
./plucount_all.sh


Errors after running in Windows prompt.
mv: target '/tmpToolsData/PLUCount': No such file or directory

rm: cannot revove '/tmpToolsData/PLUCount': No such file or directory

./plucount_all.sh: line XX: /tmp/ToolsData/PLUCount/Data.log : No such file or directory

sed: cant read /tmp/ToolsData/PLUCount/Data.log

grep: /tmp/ToolsData/PLUCount/Data.log: No such file or directory

The first error message is clear - the directory /tmpToolsData/PLUCount doesn't exist. This might be caused by the script using a variable LINUX which is not set. Is that intentional?

Also, the mv commands in the script look pretty malformed. Perhaps you should first understand how the mv command is used.

Generally it's not quite clear to me what this script is supposed to achieve.

Hi, the script is supposed to query a remote linux pc and then compare it with static value indicated in the plucount.sh (another script called by plucount_all.sh).

No problem running the script on the actual Linux server, but when calling it from a windows pc via remote connection using plink, the error appears.

Perhaps when you run it on the server, the LINUX variable is set and the first error won't appear. It might help to know where the PLUCount directory is located.

But the line mv $DATA_BACKUP_DIR/Backup is unlikely to succeed in any circumstances. What is moved where?

Hi the PLUcount directory is located in /home/tmp/ToolsData/

Made some corrections

from:
/code
mv $DATA_BACKUP_DIR/*.log
mv $DATA_BACKUP_DIR/Backup

to:

/code
mv $POSDATA_BACKUP_DIR/*.log $POSDATA_BACKUP_DIR/Backup/

For the variables, it is being declared in the Linux box (part of the bash script), I assume I wont have problems with it.

You do though. LINUX is not set. I guess the bash script in question is not used when logging in from plink.

Yeah your right, the other error that appears are the ones from the other script being called by the first script

/code
for (( c=$START; c<=$END; c++ ))
do
plucount.sh $c >> $LOGFILE
done


Should I declare all the Linux variables in the first script? Is there a way to have this corrected? Thanks you very much
