I will go ahead and try your suggestions...
lets hope this helps...

I do want the content of the file /etc/redhat-release to be append in /tmp/release.info,
so I will use cat instaed..


---------- Post updated at 03:08 PM ---------- Previous update was at 02:47 PM ----------

this is the script I used...
# Logs to each server using file and append the name of file with the release description into
# a single file and copies it to harp server
echo "entering for loop"

for host in `cat $PATH_TEMP/test1.txt`
    echo "inside do loop"
        #logs to server and gets release information into file
    echo "before ssh"
        ssh $host "cat /etc/redhat-release >> /tmp/host_release.info"
    echo "done creating release file"
        #creates file and adds name of server to the file
        ssh $host "touch /tmp/host_name.info"
    echo "done creating file with server name"
        ssh $host "echo $host >> /tmp/host_name.info"
    echo "done modifying server name file"
        #concatenates both files into a single file with a ';'
        ssh $host "paste -d \";\" /tmp/host_name.info /tmp/host_release.info >> /tmp/release.info"
    echo "done formatting file"
        scp -p $host:/tmp/release.info harp:$PATH_TEMP/release.info
    echo "done copying file to local server"
        ssh $host "rm -f /tmp/host_name.info"
        ssh $host "rm -f /tmp/host_release.info"
        ssh $host "rm -f /tmp/release.info"
    echo "done deleting .info files"

#Adds new information from server to main file
cat $PATH_TEMP/release.info >> servers_release.info
echo "done concat"
rm $PATH_TEMP/release.info
echo "done -rm"

this is what I get on my shell

  [root@edsrep1 tmp]# more host_name.info
  [root@edsrep1 tmp]# more host_release.info
  Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
  Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
  Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
  [root@edsrep1 tmp]# cat /etc/redhat-release >> /tmp/host_release.info2
  [root@edsrep1 tmp]# more host_release.info2
  Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
  [root@edsrep1 tmp]# more release.info
  ;Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
  ;Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
  ;Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)

It looks like its redoing the same thing 3 times for the same server. The file where all the servers are listed looks like this

so the 1st time this script is exected, this should be the content of file file copied over ssh
