Put a line like this in a file in /etc/udev/rules.d:

KERNEL=="sd*", ATTRS{vendor}=="<vendor name>", ATTRS{model}=="<model name>", ATTRS{serial}=="<serial number>", RUN+="/mypath/copyScript.sh"

You may need to restart after that :)

I have some unique requirement, where I need to do something like this -
1. My script takes the argument as file name which is absolute filename.
2. I need to separate the filename and directory from this absolute file name for the further processing.

Any suggestions -

I have thousands of html files inside a folder. I want to replace the filename present inside another files. Say for ex:- fileName: 'abcd1234.html' is found inside another file say file2.html. Then I want to remove the last 4 digits of the fileName i.e,. 'abcd1234.html' => 'abcd.htm'.

I am using below script to validate IPV6 address but this script also pass invalid IP such as empty string, name etc.

if [[ "$IPv6ADDR"=~"^:?([a-fA-F0-9]{1,4}(:|.)?){0,8}(:|::)?([a-fA-F0-9]{1,4}(:|.)?){0,8}$" ]]; then
  echo "valid ipv6 addr"
  break;
else
  echo "Invalid IP Address"
  break;
fi

Can someone identify what's wrong in the regex, Please?
