"URGENT"How can i execute shell script from a remote server ?


Hi all,

Problem statement:I have configured passwordless ssh between two servers A & B.Now i want to start & stop one tomcat server(instaled on sever B) from server A.

I am executing this command: ssh serverA " sh cd {path to the directory where tomcat is installed) startup.sh"

Error message:"Neither the JAVA_HOME nor the JRE_HOME environment variable is defined At least one of these environment variable is needed to run this program."

But both java_home & jre_home is defined correctly on server-B in ~/.bash_profile.

Please provide help in this.
Regards
Amit giri

Agreed with the last poster... Very simple.

Just ssh into the box and run the script.

I guess both of you have not read the entire problem statement.

I am facing problems with the JAVA_HOME setup on server B.
The script that i want to trigger requires JAVA_HOME.

Now when i checked on server B for JAVA_HOME i found that it was configured correctly in ./bash_profile.

Regards

But if you want to run the command on server A, the variable should be defined there. Is not it? Or am I still missing something?

The problem is that you are trying to run a program on server A. The fact that server B is set up correctly has no bearing on the problem.

To run a program on server A, server A must be set up correctly, whereas server B's setup won't be of any benefit.

Your command --

Code:
ssh serverA " sh cd {path to the directory where tomcat is installed) startup.sh"
-- tries to start tomcat on server A, not B. Is this what you intended?

What about shell type/env setup?
SSH with and without command gives different results? env is different?

works as expected
Code:
[a ~]$ ssh 172.24.40.100
Last login: Mon Jan  1 06:07:24 2001 from 172.24.41.78
[b ~]# /path/script.sh
gives me error consistent with env setup
Code:
[a ~]$ ssh 172.24.40.100 /path/script.sh
Which implies the latter is running the script.sh on host a, when I want to
'launch' in from a, and 'run' it on b!?

(Was posted here but better here!)

Hey i am still here but my problem get resolve by defining the JAVA_HOME explicitly in my script that i am executing. i.e i defined export JAVA_HOME="path to java_home on server B".

Anyways thanks alot for your precious time.
