Re: symcli output getting truncated in dos

its working as designed due to number of character limitation. One workaround is to use -v with your output. Could you please write the entire command which gives you this output? we may tweak commands with scripts.

e.g:

C:\Users\srohilla.ICI>

C:\Users\srohilla.ICI>symaccess list -type storage -sid 09 -v | findstr /C:_SG

Storage Group Name    : Bronze_SG

Storage Group Name    : FRA-B2GCUS01_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23101_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23102_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23103_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23104_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23105_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23106_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23107_SG

Storage Group Name    : fra-pc-b23108_SG

Storage Group Name    : Gold_SG

Storage Group Name    : Silver_SG

Storage Group Name    : VBLOCK_AMP_CLUSTER_SG

Re: symcli output getting truncated in dos

Koppuru,

You should be able to see the full names if you use the XML output... just add the "-output xml_e" flag to the command.

You can then try to either read the XML manually, parse it programmatically, or import it into Exel.

Thanks,

- Sean

Re: symcli output getting truncated in dos

Is there a way to get this output directly to csv file..Though the output in xml file is coming exactly but it is not user friendly output..

Below is the output of xml file

</Symm_Info>

- <Tech_Demand>

  <technology>EFD</technology> 

  <logical_tier_enabled_total>6604</logical_tier_enabled_total> 

  <logical_tier_free_total>69</logical_tier_free_total> 

  <logical_tier_used_total>6535</logical_tier_used_total> 

  <logical_fast_sg_usage_total>6533</logical_fast_sg_usage_total> 

  <logical_fast_available_total>6538</logical_fast_available_total> 

  <logical_max_sg_demand_total>79042</logical_max_sg_demand_total> 

  <logical_tech_excess>-72504</logical_tech_excess> 

  <tech_no_of_vp_tiers>1</tech_no_of_vp_tiers> 

- <VP_Tier>

  <tier_name>VP_R53_EFD</tier_name> 

  <tier_attribute>TIER_ASSOC_FP</tier_attribute> 

  <tier_protection>RAID-5(3+1)</tier_protection> 

  <logical_tier_enabled>6604</logical_tier_enabled> 

  <logical_tier_free>69</logical_tier_free> 

  <logical_tier_used>6535</logical_tier_used> 

  <logical_tier_sg_usage>6533</logical_tier_sg_usage> 

  <logical_tier_fast_avail>6538</logical_tier_fast_avail>

Re: symcli output getting truncated in dos

Unfortunately No, however, you can open the XML with MS excel or openoffice and save the output as other formats--> CSV.

Do not open the XML with a text editor or a browser.

Hope it helps

Re: symcli output getting truncated in dos

Nope, Just add -v at the end of the command as koppuru mentioned above.

Re: symcli output getting truncated in dos

use

H:\>set SYMCLI_FULL_NAME=1

H:\>symsg  list

..

                      Flags Number  Child

Storage Group Name    FMSL  Devices  SGs

-------------------------------------------

s_VMWARE01             .XP.      87      3

s_VMWARE_GOLD          XXC.      87      0

s_VMWARE_PLATINUM      .XC.       0      0

s_VMWARE_SILVER        .XC.       0      0

verylooooooongnameeeeeee ....       0      0

This will give you full names output for SG, IG, MV, DG, CG etc. Much better than grepping the -v or xml outputs

Re: symcli output getting truncated in dos

Thanks bhalilov for the reply....

Even after setting SYMCLI_FULL_NAME=1 we are not able to get full name of the storage group for the below command..

symfast -sid xx list -tech EFD -demand -vp
