Scripting Question

Online Shell Script not picking up KACE variables in OSX 10.x script

01/15/2014 4156 views

The following line produces an error:

cp $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)/nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd.json

/Library/Application Support/Dell/KACE/data/scripts/275/script.sh: line 13: KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR: command not found

What I need is to get the shellscript to locate the json file being uploaded as a dependency and move that file to another location on the system.

The issue was that the Kace_dependency_dir was adding it's own "/" at the end.  So the script was senidng blah//sldkjwkf instead of blah/kjksdfj
