AWK Help for linkloop

Hello masters of scripting,

I am trying do a small script that will do linkloop tests on interfaces, and I need your help.

Here is a sample output of just a bare lanscan (minus a few interfaces):

Hardware Station Crd Hdw Net-Interface NM MAC HP-DLPI DLPI
Path Address In# State NamePPA ID Type Support Mjr#
0/5/1/0/4/0 0x001A4BF56734 2 UP lan2 snap2 1 ETHER Yes 119
0/5/1/0/4/1 0x001A4BF56735 3 UP lan3 snap3 2 ETHER Yes 119

I thought I was on to something when I was able to get the following formated output:

# lanscan | grep -v Hardware | grep -v Path | awk '{print $3, $2}'
2 0x001A4BF56734
3 0x001A4BF56735
4 0x001A4BF56736
5 0x001A4BF56737
6 0x001A4BF56394
7 0x001A4BF56395
8 0x001A4BF56396
9 0x001A4BF56397
0 0x001A4B0766B6
1 0x001A4B0766B7

And then I put the output into a for loop, and it falls apart:

for i in `lanscan | grep -v Hardware | grep -v Path | awk '{print $3, $2}'`
echo linkloop -i $i
linkloop -i 2
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56734
linkloop -i 3
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56735
linkloop -i 4
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56736
linkloop -i 5
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56737
linkloop -i 6
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56394
linkloop -i 7
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56395
linkloop -i 8
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56396
linkloop -i 9
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56397
linkloop -i 0
linkloop -i 0x001A4B0766B6
linkloop -i 1
linkloop -i 0x001A4B0766B7

Please help!!

Not sure what the desired 'linkloop' line supposed to be, but....
lanscan |nawk '/^[0-9]/ { printf("echo linkloop -i %s %s\n", $3, $2) }' | sh

Got this option as well:

lanscan | awk '/[0-9]/{print $3, $2}' | while read i
echo linkloop -i $i
echo "----------------------"
linkloop -i $i

Final Solution:

lanscan | awk '/[0-9]/{print $3, $2}' | while read i
echo LAN `echo $i | awk '{print $1}'`
echo linkloop -i $i
echo "----------------------"
linkloop -i $i


linkloop -i 0 0x00306E13F682
Link connectivity to LAN station: 0x00306E13F682
error: expected primitive 0x30, got DL_ERROR_ACK
dl_error_primitive = 0x2d
dl_errno = 0x04
dl_unix_errno = 57
error - did not receive data part of message

linkloop -i 2 0x00306E0C541F
Link connectivity to LAN station: 0x00306E0C541F
-- OK

linkloop -i 3 0x00306E38D363
Link connectivity to LAN station: 0x00306E38D363
-- OK

linkloop -i 1 0x00306E21D5B7
Link connectivity to LAN station: 0x00306E21D5B7
-- OK

lanscan | awk '/[0-9]/{print $3, $2}' | while read lan station
   echo LAN "${lan}"
   echo linkloop -i "${lan}" "${station}" 
   echo "----------------------"
   linkloop -i "${lan}" "${station}"
