3 servers 1 .ksh script

system = AIX

How can I explain this.....

Keep in mind I do not want to login to the boxes, persay, and that I am fairly new to scripting and unix.

I want to use SSH.

I have a script on server1, this is where I want it to run from.
I have server2 and server3, where I want the script to get information from.

basically I want to be able to run a grep command from server1 to server2 and server3.

That is just about it, I can't think of any other way to put it.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.

See the man page for ssh. You can, if you set up ssh correctly, run a ssh to hostname with optional command.


ssh (SSH client) is a program for logging into a remote machine and for
executing commands on a remote machine. It is intended to replace rlogin
and rsh, and provide secure encrypted communications between two
untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and arbitrary
TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel.

ssh connects and logs into the specified hostname (with optional user
name). The user must prove his/her identity to the remote machine using
one of several methods depending on the protocol version used.

If command is specified, command is executed on the remote host instead
of a login shell.

Thanks RTM, I did not even think about seeing if there were man pages for ssh.

I appreciate the help.
