In a loop I am using below command for every database

crsctl status res | grep -E "ora\.$DATABASE\.(.+)\.svc" and below is one of the sample output

Now I want to extract just service name out of this string (that is sgraphutxdb) please help me how do I proceed?
Additionally,if I need to pass the node name as one of the parameters while calling this script
Let's suppose the script name is test_relocate.sh and I need to execute this like below:
test_relocate.sh -n node1
Now how do I use this argument inside the script in a loop

Best regards,

RE: need assistance on scripting

Etracting the service name: pipe the string into

cut -d. -f3

RE: need assistance on scripting

If the service name will always be in the form as shown in your example, you can do this:

echo $NAME | awk -F. '{print $3}'

If you need that result in a variable:

SVCNAME=`echo $NAME | awk -F. '{print $3}'`
