Full Discussion: Run awk command inside ssh
Top Forums UNIX for Advanced & Expert Users Run awk command inside ssh Post 303041641 by stomp on Saturday 30th of November 2019 09:03:08 AM
Quoting is a pain in the ass if you try to do it in combination with ssh commands.

Some hints:
  • Perform the actual textprocessing locally if possible, like this: ssh remoteserver command | grep ... | cut ... | awk ...
  • Put all what you want to do into a script, copy the script to remote and run it. I wrote a small script myself, which does that for me on a list of servers:
    • check connectivity to server
    • copy script package to server
    • extract script package on server
    • run script on server
    • delete script package
  • If you have a list of servers you have to manage regularly, dive into some management or admin tool that allows the tasks for multiple servers(pssh, ansible, puppet, chef, saltstack, ...)

I just checked google. Seems that AIX has some support on the primary linux targeted config management tools above:
