there is no symcli simulator but there are certain commands that can be run in "offline" mode. Search this forum ..i know there were a couple of threads on that.
You can use Solutions Enabler locally on your machine to simulate symcli commands if you copy the symapi_db.bin file to your machine in the path below and set the following variables:
set SYMCLI_DB_FILE = C:\Program Files\EMC\SYMAPI\db\symapi_db.bin
I also found a bunch of Forum threads on the "Offline Mode" subject, here is the link that I found the above info in:
tried to get the file sympai_db.bin in solutions enabler software but no luck.
can some one point me to get the file SYMAPI_db.bin to download......?
Appricated for your help.
you need to copy it from one of your active symcli configurations. This file gets created once you install SE and run "symcfg discover" on a host that's attached to a Symm.
Thats a good point Dynamox makes...run your symcfg discover command just before pulling your symapi_db.bin to insure you get the latest configuration on the array.
Thats great to hear! I'm glad I was able to asist.
If you do not mind, could you please mark the reply which fixed your issue with the "answered" tag.
