Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you're clear-texting the passphrase into the script anyway, why not just skip the middleman and set up a fully passwordless login between the two servers. Then you can just scp like normal without having to use expect.

For what it's worth, I have an expect script that does something very similar, but looks quite different. I'm not an expect expert, so I can't really comment on what the differences are, but maybe you could try running it this way to see if you get different results
this is when I am getting the permission denied error . So i tired to just run the script and i have put a -v in the scp , just to see whats going on
here is what a portion of the verbose
