Be careful with the quotes:
'date +%Y-%m-%d'
They shoul be: `
Try this way instead, if you like:
sh node1 tail -20 /var/opt/fds/statistics/FSC-InapInterface_2.0_A_1-$(date +%Y-%m-%d)-2-0000.stat >> node1.txt

Anyway, this last file name is not the same you wrote on your 1st post...

Why not assign the system date time to a variable like in the example below.
TIME_SEC=`date +-%Y-%m-%d-%H%M` gives you -2007-01-09-1043
TIME_SEC=`date +%Y%m%d%H%M` gives you 200701091044
You can then use the variable $TIME_SEC in your script.
Hope this helps.
