Anyone have the instructions on how to download a CoreDump file via the CLI using the file get and an SFTP server?  I assume these files are being store in the activelog folder but when I issue the following command from the CLI


file list activelog *.*


it returns 0 files and 0 directories.


I know you can also use RTMT to collect the crash dumps but I would rather use the CLI.  You can view the core dump files on the server using


utils core active list


How do I download it using file get???

Hi


Not sure about that specific file, but my method for finding things is like so:


File list activelog /


Will list you the root folders, you can then append them and repeat:


File list activelog /cm/


Etc...


If you really struggle to find something that way, you can try :


File search activelog * aaron recurs ignorecase


To search all files for instances of 'aaron' - one trick is to pull the file via RTMT, and then open it and find a string in it you can search for.... then find it via the CLI and you'll know where it is next time.


Would be nice if there was a document telling you where everything was...


I guess what you are looking for would be somewhere in:


File list activelog platform/


Once you find it, I find that file get can be a bit picky about which SFTP servers it will write to... but the above should get you started...


Regards


Aaron

Hey thanks Aaron, that's exactly the clue I needed.  Now I can see all the folders.
