unix script to check if rsh to box and send status mail

rshstatus=`rsh -n lilo /db/p2/oracle/names9208/restart_names.sh`
if $rshstatus <>0 then
errstatus=1
mailx -s "xirsol8dr" ordba@xxx.com >> $log_dr
else if errstatus=0
echo "status to xirsol8dr successful"


can anyone provide if this is t he correct way to do this or is there a better way?

rsh doesn't return the exit code of the remote command. It would be nice if it did, but it doesn't. So you have to have restart_names.sh send the mail, or have it output something like FAILED and use your code above. Of course, you should use != instead of <>. Oh, and "errstatus" is completely redundant here.
