Upload/donwload files from Blade

Hi all,
I have 2 BL870c with HPUX 11.31 and I have to make a patch analysis in each server.
I have to upload the swainv script to the server, execute it and download the inventory.xml created by the script.
The servers hasn't got network connectivity, I am connected to the onboard with a network cable connected physically to it.
I don't know how to upload the swainv script and then download the inventory.xml file to my notebook.
I tried to make an iso file with the swainv script, use the Virtual Media to mount the iso and then execute the script, but it gives me an error of 'unrecognized character in line 98of swainv'. Although I could get the script to work, I don't know how I could download to my notebook the inventory.xml.

Any ideas??

Thanks!!

Shalom,

You can make a private network between the two systems and use any protocol you want.

ftp, sftp for example.

Connect the systems.

ifconfig lan0 To get the network configuration of the blade.

set the laptop up on the same network, different host. Do the file transfer.

If the notebook is modern you can connect via a standard network cable with no hub.

Re: Upload/donwload files from Blade

I forgot to mention that...
I tried to connect my notebook with a network cable to the switch of the blades, looking at the 'Port Mapping' and connecting to the corresponding port in the switch, but it didn't give me link, it didn't even switch on the led of the network port.

Re: Upload/donwload files from Blade

yeah, get your network connections working...

seriously though if you can't do that, but you have access through a console device, then you couyld use kermit to upload the file to the blades

you'll need some kermit software for your laptop (actually a lot of terminal emulation software has this built in - IIRC Reflections always did)

Then just setup kermit on the HPUX host to receive a file:

kermit -r

then go to your windows kermit software and send the file - the file gets sent across your telnet/ssh session

OK, thanks!!
I didn't know that protocol.
I'll try it next time I went to the customer.
