I would like to find out if you can use the extended ping cli command within EEM. If not is there some way I can specify the source address for a ping within EEM?

You can certainly use an extended ping with EEM. You don't even have to have it interactive. For example:


ping ip 10.1.1.1 source 11.1.1.1 ...


You would then process the output of this command as you would any other in EEM. I have a library that helps interact with the CLI within an EEM TCL policy at http://www.cisco.com/go/ciscobeyond/ . You may find that helpful.
