    Hello, how to copy a file from one server to multiple servers using scp? There are over a 100 servers so I need to read from a server list that I have. Is this possible?

    Possible, but there is a better and more controlled way.

    As indicated in another thread of yours, a system and config management tool like puppet or chef is appropriate for this number of machines.
    A trivial puppet manifest to do what you want looks like this:
    file { "/your/file/on/the/servers":
      source => "puppet://modules/your_service/your_file_on_the_puppetmaster"
      owner  => 'root',
      group  => 'root',
      mode   => '600',
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
