Hi guys I need some help, I wrote a script to connect to multiple ssh hosts but the script only work with the first IP the other ones didn't change. Here is my script:


# Conectar a cada una de las IP
for host in $HOSTS; do 
  ssh "$USER@$HOSTS" 'bash -s arg' < /home/soulfly/Escritorio/neo1isla1.sh
  • $HOSTS is a string, but you're using it (well, trying to use it) as an array. My Bash knowledge is limited, but I don't think it'll work like that. – ceejayoz Sep 11 '17 at 23:54
  • @ceejayoz bash will split a string in a loop like that using the internal field separator ($IFS). So a string will be broken up. Try running var='one two three four' ; for a in $var ; do echo "- $a" ; done – Zoredache Sep 14 '17 at 19:28

Try ssh "$USER@$host" instead of $HOSTS. The $HOSTS contains the list of all the addresses.
