scripting issue

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



If i am locally on a box the following works fine

ROOTDEV=`cat /boot/grub/grub.conf | grep "^\#.*root\=" | awk '{print $5}'`

but if i put this into a script to run from another host it fails eg

ssh $HOST 'ROOTDEV=`cat /boot/grub/grub.conf | grep "^\#.*root\=" | awk '{print $5}'`'
awk: cmd. line:1: {print
awk: cmd. line:1:       ^ unexpected newline or end of string

seems the space in the print $5 upsets things - anyone know how to escape this space out so it will work?
