SSSU non-interactive mode

SSSU non-interactive mode

SSSU can be invoked and run in command line by using the following format:

sssu "SELECT MANAGER USERNAME= PASSWORD=" "command1" "command2"...."commandn"

eg) sssu "SELECT MANAGER USERNAME=administrator PASSWORD=xxx" "add vdisk Vdisk001 size=1" "ls vdisk Vdisk001"

This may come in handy when writing scripts using SSSU.

Re: SSSU non-interactive mode

We could avoid having to type a password in cleartext by creating a password file for SSSU using the following steps.

1. Navigate to the folder where SSSU is located and issue the command sssu -a


c:\>sssu.exe -a

2. You will be asked for login credentials


C:\>sssu -a

SSSU for HP StorageWorks Command View EVA
Version: 9.2.0
Build: 0701109


3. This creates an entry in the SSSU password file for the entered login, this can be verified by the command sssu -l


C:\>sssu -l

SSSU for HP StorageWorks Command View EVA
Version: 9.2.0

4. to delete an entry the command sssu -d can be used.

Once the password file entry is created, we can run a command as follows without the need to enter password.

sssu "SELECT MANAGER USERNAME=administrator" "add vdisk Vdisk001 size=1" "ls vdisk Vdisk001"

Note: The password file is an encrypted file

Re: SSSU non-interactive mode

Thanks for the steps to create password file. I have a question about the password file.

Where is this password file created and what is it named as?
