    Hello,

    This script is causing problems... for some reason it keeps leaving dead SSH
    connections around, which actually caused the server to run out of file
    handles, reporting (too many open files).

    Is there something wrong with the script??

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help, here's the script:

    ======================================================================
    #!/bin/csh -f

    set NPARAMS = 1
    if ($#argv != $NPARAMS) then
            echo "Usage: $0 <list of automount hosts>"
            exit 1
    endif
    set HOSTLIST = $1
    shift
    set P1 = $1
    set P2 = $2

    set FILENAME=/project2/remote/automountresults`date "+%Y%m%d%H%M%S"`.txt
    echo Automount auto.rmt results > $FILENAME
    foreach host (`cat $HOSTLIST`)
            echo $host
            echo $host >> $FILENAME
            /usr/bin/scp /project2/remote/auto.rmt $host":/tmp/"
            /usr/bin/scp /project2/remote/automountconfig $host":/tmp/"
            /usr/bin/ssh root@$host /tmp/automountconfig >> $FILENAME
    end
    ======================================================================

    Thanks,
    Hobbs.
