Automatic Sending of HP 3Par command through email - script

Hi, sorry as I do not know yet how to categorize may inquiry correctly in the location.

I am new to the HP Storage Environment and I just would like to ask if you can help me with a task.

Is it possible to create a script wherein the output from a command in HP 3Par be sent in an email  in a certain period of time?

For example, the output of a command showrcopy from HP 3PAR be sent to my Outlook email at 6:00 AM GST?

May I know the tools that can be used to achieve this?

Thanks for your time and assistance and help will be all appreciated.

That should be fine.

First you will need to either install the external 3PAR CLI software, or preferred, set up SSH between your host (desktop?) and your 3PAR system. See the HPE 3PAR Command Line Interface Administrator's Manual for how to use SSH with your system.

Then
ssh {YourSystemCredentials} showrcopy > tempfile

followed by something on your host that would mail the tempfile to your Outlook account.

Re: Automatic Sending of HP 3Par command through email - script

Hi Sheldon,

 

Thanks for the info.

I am using SSH via Putty for the commands.

What I'm thinking of is to create a script with the help of Windows PowerShell. Will that be possible? If so, may I know the tools or any modules needed, or can the commands on HP 3Par be automatically called in the PS?

 

Hoping for your reply.

PuTTY? Then look at the PLINK command if you have not already done so.

Windows Powershell: You can get the HPE 3PAR Powershell Toolkit from the Software Depot. (Google is your friend.)

You can also use the logging there to capture the command output.

You can invoke the Remote CLI client from your scripts.
