I have a script which has a ssh call in it:

echo Calling the file server
ssh root@hh32 "mkdir /home2/$2/$1 ; chown $uid:20513 /home2/$2/$1 ;
echo Back on DC
<rest of script>

The ssh call works, but it never returns to the calling script to finish
the rest of the commands.. IOW we never see the words:
Back on DC
It must have exited because the command prompt after the ssh call is
that of the calling box, not the remote box.

How do I exit correctly at end of the ssh call so that the rest of the
calling script is executed?

Hi Lynn

try using batch mode for ssh (ssh -o "BatchMode yes" ...)

I dont think you need the exit

if you dont want any warnings use -q option as well.

you can also try -v -v -v to get as much debugging as you can to see what is

your mkdir probably should be mkdir -p
