Hi Ramoncin,

You have a done a great job by posting these list of commands, Those were really helpful for me.

But Valdir, wants scripts which can run the entire process, just like Provisioning(mapping to FAs, Masking to Hosts, Checking Redundancy to every device). Based on his question, I am thinking that he wants some built in scripts which is like a program we need to run on SYMCLI hosts.

Correct me if I am wrong, Valdir...

Hey Buddies , Thanks so much getting back my question

Yes you guys both are right in fact I am looking for some bult in symcli scripts for provisioning and getting symmetrix box informations for Storage Assessment Report, so that , check the informations out and putting on the Best Practices Recommendations to the customer.

Beside that, my inttention on it is to create a baseline command line aimed to created and customized one automatic storage scope report based on those getting box information best practices.

Based on the first response I started to create my own script , but still inquiring the community under have one ready bult-in its going to makes wornders for me otherwise I will going on developing the script one and wishing to share with everybody

Re: Symmetrix - SYMCLI Assessment Script commands

you can find built in scripts from your EMC- CE or Field Engineer. They will have access to Dial Home, in case of any issues they will use those scripts to figure out what exactly the issue is. So please check with them or else use powerlink, we can find few built in scripts over there also.

Re: Symmetrix - SYMCLI Assessment Script commands

Thank you all getting back my approaches regarding bulti-in scripts for Assessment Script all answers are helpful.

I would like to share the iniative that I built to solve my concerns.

I will be running up the scripts to collect info first for generate a assessment report to the customer and populate one spreadsheet initially.

After that , We will working to customize some standards reports pro actively to the customer under SCA , Storage Scope and Control Center

The ideia is have a baseline to bult those reports under the best practices collect information , the bultin in scripts could be a good source on it.

Bellow sharing the commands contents we are developing to accomplish that task:

@echo on
