Problems with if condition

My code:
Code:
server="icapp1 icapp6 ihapp1 ihapp6 icapp2 icapp3 icapp4 ihapp2 ihapp3 ihapp4 icapp5 ihapp5 "
printf "\nCheck server: "
read input
if [ $input == $server ]
then

and the problem is "$input == $server" is wrong SmilieSmilieSmilie. Can someone fix this for me. I don't want to use || for all these servers.
Thanks

try
Code:
servers="icapp1 icapp6 ihapp1 ihapp6 icapp2 icapp3 icapp4 ihapp2 ihapp3 ihapp4 icapp5 ihapp5 "
for server in $( echo $servers | nawk '{A[++c] = $0} END { for ( i = 1; i <= c; i++ ) { print A[i] }}' RS=' ' );
do
read input
if [ $input == $server ]
then
   echo "Success"
else
   echo "Failure"
fi
done

grep?

Why not grep for $input in $server?

Code:
$ server="ix1 ix2 bx1 bx2"

$ echo $server
ix1 ix2 bx1 bx2

$ var1="ix1"

$ echo $var1
ix1

$ echo $server | grep $var1
ix1 ix2 bx1 bx2

$ var1="ix3"

$ echo $server | grep $var1

$

Try
Code:
[ "${server}" != "${server/$input//}" ] && echo OK || echo NOK

Code:
server="icapp1 icapp6 ihapp1 ihapp6 icapp2 icapp3 icapp4 ihapp2 ihapp3 ihapp4 icapp5 ihapp5 "
for i in $server
do
  if [ "$i" = "$input" ]; then
    echo hello
  fi
done

Code:
case $server in
  ("$input "*|*" $input "*|*" $input")
     echo hello
esac

@RudiC @joeyg. There is a potential mismatch if there is a printer called icapp40 in the list for example or vice versa..

--edit--
Added spaces around equal sign, thanks clx..

Not sure, whether you want something like this ?

Code:
#!/bin/bash

server="icapp1 icapp6 ihapp1 ihapp6 icapp2 icapp3 icapp4 ihapp2 ihapp3 ihapp4 icapp5 ihapp5 "

# -p "Prompt" : Display prompt to user without a newline 
read -p "Check Server : " server_name 


# i -> stands for upper/lower case 
# w -> --word-regexp

if grep -iw "$server_name" <<<"$server" >/dev/null; then
	echo "Yes $server_name found in server list"
         # some more code...
else
	echo "No $sever_name not found in server list"
        # some more code...
fi

Try
Code:
X="¦"${server// /¦}"¦"
[ "${X}" != "${X/¦$input¦/}" ] && echo OK || echo NOK

EDIT: or
Code:
X=" $server "
[ "${X}" != "${X/ $input /}" ] && echo OK || echo NOK
