Issue: We had some file side files filling up to 100% causing CS reboots and failovers. It also made it where we could not login to Unisphere. The file that caused this is dev/hda3. EMC applied fix but it took 6 days to resolve so we want to be more proactive in monitoring in-house.
Action Needed: Create local account to have our monitoring group SSH into the VNX to monitor the files size.
Request: Looking for a naviseccli to create an local user to SSH into the CS and run simple df -h cmd. I want to limit the amount of access granted but want them to be able to run simple list cmds. I tried to create the account in Unisphere but never could login to the CS after creating, even tried adding rights.
I ran this but only created block user account:
naviseccli -h spa security -adduser -user xxx -password xxx -scope local -role operator
When I tried to SSH, of course it would not let me login.
I'd send email from the CS rather than have the monitoring group login. In it's simplest form,
df -h | mail -v -s Daily_FS_Info email@example.com
convert it to html if the formatting is not satisfactory and schedule via cron.
