MDS scriptig

Does anyone know about scripting possibilities for the MDS series.

I know the FM Server Database Schema document, but want to script directly the switch.

Many thanks in advance for any idea.

Kind regards,

Chris

Re: MDS scriptig

I have done some basic stuff, see attached. I opened CLI via Putty and just copied and pasted what I wanted to do.

I have removed our IP Addresses from the first section.

Hopefully that helps.

"conf

no ip access-list bogus permit udp 0.0.0.0 any eq port snmp

no ip access-list bogus permit tcp 0.0.0.255 any eq port ssh

Hi,

Tanks for the idea. I will try to use it as foundation for my scriptings.

Kind regards,

Re: MDS scriptig

Hi Christoph,

You can script directly to the switch via ssh keys and/or using snmp :-)

Re: MDS scriptig

Hi Andrew,

thanks for the hint. I just played with plink and looking for more snmp details in combination with the MDS.

Kind regards,

Re: MDS scriptig

Please keep in mind that Cisco doesn't officially support scripting to the switch and there are known problems in using it. Scripts that run fine at one version can also break as I've experience at new SAN-OS versions. Please keep this in mind when you use scripting.

Re: MDS scriptig

G'day,

Cisco DO support the command line and if scripting means running commands via the command line and/or via snmp of course they support it.

What they wont support is your actual scripts (obviously).

If you have any issues with running the commands either via command line or snmp (ie: the commands dont do what they should log a case with cisco as things should work as documented).

If in doubt, get in contact with your local SE....

Cheers

Re: MDS scriptig

You can create scripts on the switch using the scheduler command.

You create a schedule job and enter the commands you want to run, then choose how often to run it. You can also output it to a file on bootflash: and ftp off to a server as part of the scheduled job.

This tells you how to use the scheduler.
