I have a command that I want to run on machine B from machine A. If I run the command on machine B locally, it works fine.
Here is the command:
for n in `find /data1/ -name 'ini*.ext'` ; do echo cp $n "`dirname $n `/` basename $n .ext`"; done
From machine A, I issue this command
ssh user@machineB for n in `find /data1/ -name 'ini*jsem'` ; do echo cp $n "`dirname $n `/` basename $n .jsem`"; done
But I get error
syntax error near unexpected token do
What is wrong? I think it has something to do with double quotes, single quotes, semi colon because executing command
ssh user@machineB ls works fine. So not issue of authentication or something else.
