Remote RACADM "get" path length

Jump to solution

I'm using remote RACADM to pull hwinventory and bios xml files. When specifying the file export path, I'm getting errors that the path is too long. I saw that for "fwupdate" the max path length is 256 characters. Is that not the case for "get" and 'hwinventory export"? The export paths being specified are only around ~60 characters which I don't think is overly long. I've had to resort to shortening folder names using symlinks in order to get all the exports to complete while keeping the necessary organization. Is there anywhere I can find the max lengths?

Hello

Check the iDRAC log for the exact error. Also, what parameter are you changing to get rid of the error? The -f file name should be a 64 character limit and the -l share location should be 256 characters.

Thanks

Hi Daniel,

I'm using remote racadm and the only thing I'm specifying is "-f" as the path on the management node where the inventory files are to be dumped. Looks like I'll have to make the 64-character limit work. Thanks for the information.
