until (ssh firstname.lastname@example.org 2> /dev/null); do date; sleep 15; done
In this case will execute "date" then "sleep 15" until we are able to ssh into server, such as after a reboot
Could also be like:
until ( ping 10.1.1.39 1> /dev/null); do echo "server 10.1.1.39 is down"; sleep 15; done
