    EO syntax or create a script file

      Guys,

       

      I need some assistance with how to capture this data I need for the latest HPUX bundle.

       

      my inital one-liner was swlist |grep -i cpb, which works but shows all bundles ever installed. I just need the latest one.

       

      I attempted to do a swlist |grep -i cpb |tail -1, which works fine on the host, but fails in the EO. I think it needs some additional syntax, but I'm not quite sure what to do.

       

      I've tried combinations using " " and ' ' and even the ` ` but none of them work.

       

       

       

      I then created a script on an appserver and put the following line inside and ran it in the EO but it too fails. I'm not sure if i need to choose "Central execution" or "remote execution" since in this case the script is located on an appserver //appserver/path/to/script/HPUX_Patchlevel.sh

       

      #script to capture HPUX bundle information

      #!/usr/bin/sh

      /usr/sbin/swlist | grep -i cpb | /usr/bin/tail -1

       

       

      I find it sad that the EO structure doesnt support typical command line syntax that works on the server.

       

      this command works on both the host and in the EO.

       

      swlist | grep -i cpb

       

      this command works on the host but not in the EO.

       

      swlist | grep -i cpb | tail -1

       

       

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

       

       

      Thanks,

       

      Todd
