Hi.

Try reading your file from another descriptor.

For example:

Code:
exec 3< list

while read i <&3
do
    ans=`rexsh $i -l bozo -t10 uptime | cut -d" " -f6`
    echo "$i|$ans" >>bootTimes.out

        if  [ $ans -ge 120 ]
         then
                echo "$i|$ans" >>bootThese.out
         else
                echo "$i|$ans" >>bootList2Recent2Work.out
        fi

done


This may or may not help, but I know that when I have something like:
Code:
  while read SERVER do;
    ssh $SERVER some_command
  done < servers.txt

It only does the first one (I guess ssh closes standard input or something when it's done(??))

You guess right. It is easily overcome by using the -n option:
Code:
while read SERVER
do
  ssh -n $SERVER some_command
done < servers.txt
