Description (partial)

Running the switchover script fails with the following output:

# ./switchover
INFO: Thursday, May 1, 2014 02:14:23 PM EDT
INFO: Checking environment...
./switchover[12]: test: argument expected
./switchover[18]: test: argument expected
egrep: syntax error
egrep: syntax error
ERROR: RepDb interface is not active!

The  /opt/SAIrepdb/dbRep.conf file must have quotes or other punctuation around the values of $PRIMARY_SERVER and $SECONDARY_SERVER variables, which are typically HOST_A and HOST_B

This can only occur when the dbRep.conf file is manually editted.  The configRepDb script will create the file correctly.

Typically this will only be the case when a system has upgraded to or later and has come from an earlier version of draco.
