I have a perl script called send_bootstrap which begins:

#!/usr/bin/perl
@Bootstrap_Info = <>;           # This line gets bootstrap info


In the Action Field of Bootstrap notification:

/usr/local/admin/scripts/send_bootstrap

*** This seems to work ...

Darren,
My message should have read, it is attempting to fire up the script.
I have not verified that it does so successfully. I'll give your
suggestions below a try.
Thanks,
Bob

 Hi Darren,

 It looks like my action field in the notification script is just not
 working. It is firing up a perl script (yes we are on HP/UX).
 The action field seems to me to be the problem.
It *is* firing up the script?  How are you detecting that?

 /usr/bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/cat | /opt/adm/scripts/Bootstrap_Notify'
 Is this out of line?
It might work, but I always worry about quotes and stuff in the action
field itself.  Simply calling the script itself seems to be safer.  I
can't remember when to escape the quotes.

Does something like this work?

Verify your perl script is executable.

#!/usr/bin/perl
open (OUT, ">/tmp/bootstrap");
print OUT <>;

action: /tmp/executable_perl_script

Assuming you get the data in /tmp/bootstrap, then it's just a matter of
refining what the script does.
