How to deliver an error message from script?

Hi

I have a script that pick up a file on another server, and place it on a solaris server, but I came across the following error:
Code:
mget HLR01_21092014? 200 Port command successful
150 Opening data channel for file transfer.
HLR01_21092014: No space left on device
426 Connection closed; transfer aborted.
221 Goodbye

How could change my script to notify a user that there was an issue.
My script is as follows:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/sh

cd /moneta_polled01/pre_hlr

HOST=10.100.48.47
USER=hlr_dump
PASSWD=dump123

/usr/bin/ftp -nv $HOST <<EOF
user $USER $PASSWD
#cd Ordens
binary
mget *HLR*
bye
EOF

Hi,

The problem that you are seeing here is a space problem and the error is being generated from within ftp. So depending how your logging is setup an error may well be recorded in /var/log/messages or /var/adm/messages, to notify a user that this job has failed you'll either have to capture the error information from ftp or check a log file and send out a mail as required.

Regards

Dave

Please can you give a hint in how could achieved that?

---------- Post updated at 11:49 AM ---------- Previous update was at 10:32 AM ----------

using the line
Code:
>> /var/tmp/HLR_ftp.log

after
Code:
/usr/bin/ftp -nv $HOST <<EOF

, it creates the following content in the log file:
Code:
 more HLR_ftp.log

root@moneta #

but does not provide, what caused, which is:

Code:
 ./get1_HLR.sh
HLR01_21092014: No space left on device

check what is exit status of ftp command using echo $?....
then using if condition send the mail to user..something like below
Code:
if [ $? -eq <o/p of above echo> ] # exit status is not 0
  then
    echo "No space left on device" | mailx -s "Error:No Space" email@mycomp.com
else
    echo "File transfered SUCCESSFULLY at $(date)."
fi

hi

this is my modification, but still not working:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/sh

cd /moneta_polled01/pre_hlr

HOST=10.100.48.47
USER=hlr_dump
PASSWD=dump123

/usr/bin/ftp -nv $HOST <<EOF
user $USER $PASSWD
#cd Ordens
binary
mget *HLR*
bye
EOF
EXITSTATUS=$?

if [ $EXITSTATUS != "0" ] # exit status is not 0
        then
echo "No space left on device" | mailx -s "Error:No Space" xyz@mycomp.com
        else
echo "File transfered SUCCESSFULLY at $(date)." | mailx -s "HLR successfully transfered" xyz@mycomp.com

Hi Fretagi,

if you add the line like so;
Code:
#!/usr/bin/sh

cd /moneta_polled01/pre_hlr

HOST=10.100.48.47
USER=hlr_dump
PASSWD=dump123

/usr/bin/ftp -nv $HOST <<EOF
user $USER $PASSWD
#cd Ordens
binary
mget *HLR*
bye
EOF
echo $? 
EXITSTATUS=$?

if [ $EXITSTATUS != "0" ] # exit status is not 0
        then
echo "No space left on device" | mailx -s "Error:No Space" xyz@mycomp.com
        else
echo "File transfered SUCCESSFULLY at $(date)." | mailx -s "HLR successfully transfered" xyz@mycomp.com

Then run your script - you'll be able to see the exit code of "ftp" which I think will be "0"

Regards

Dave
