EVA Array Configuration to text file

What is the easiest and least risky way to dump simple configuration/asset data to a text file for a number of EVA arrays?

I'm looking for things like number of controllers, amount of cache, number and size of disks, RAID group info, etc.

Thanks!

Re: EVA Array Configuration to text file

The Storage System Scripting Utility (SSSU) allows you to get this information in simple text form or in XML format, e.g.:

- list all disks
EVA1> ls disk
- list all disks with details
EVA1> ls disk full
- list all disks with details in XML format
EVA1> ls disk full XML

And don't forget the "CAPTURE CONFIGURATION" command which creates an SSSU script which allows you to rebuild or clone an EVA configuration.

Uwe - thanks!

How about cache on the controllers?

I assume LS CONTROLLER FULL?
