Basically i need to check the files in server1 and server2 on currrent date is equal on each 1 hr frequency.

Can anyone help me on this.

Thanks in advance

# 2  
how about something like


if diff -q <(find $CHECK_DIR -mtime -1 -print) <(ssh server2 find $CHECK_DIR -mtime -1 -print) > /dev/null
    echo "Files are the same"
    echo "Files are different"

# 3  

Showing err

Syntax error at line 4 : `(' is not expected

Idea is to when the scheduled sh file is executed it should match the files
between 2 servers and send mail whether it matches or not.

so there shouldn't be a pause or login issue in script execution

is it possible to hardcode uid and pwd in script.

thanks in advance
