Re: Send SEL contents to Support

The MP does not have access to any usable filesystem, so MP cannot save the result to file by itself.

If you're using a serial console, you'll need to plug a PC to the console connector instead of a dumb terminal. Run a terminal emulator program on the PC (on Linux, minicom is a good one; on Windows, Hyperterminal is adequate).

Connect to the MP, then activate the "capture" function in the terminal emulator program: it will copy everything the MP displays after this point to a file on the PC. Then just run the necessary MP commmands.


If you're using a LAN console, you usually can just copy&paste the text from your console connection window to any text editor.

Hi,
Another option if you're using a LAN console from a unix box is to use 'script(1)', which will save everything displayed to the screen. This will save you from having to physically cut and paste from the screen (which can be a pain if there are several screens-worth of output).
