Managing command line tasks

You can create custom command line tasks to run CLI commands on local and remote systems, and run batch files and executables on local systems.

For example, you can create a custom command line task to run a security audit and gather information about the systems’ security status.

  • NOTE: The Remote Server Administrator Command task requires that the Windows Management Instrumentation service is running on the selected targets.

To create command line tasks:

  1. Click Manage > Remote Tasks > Common Tasks > Create Command Line Task .
  2. On General, enter a task name.
  3. Select one of the following options:
    • Remote Server Administrator Command—To run the server administrator command on remote servers.
    • Generic Command—To run the command, executable file, or batch file.
    • IPMI Command—To run the IPMI commands on the remote system.
    • RACADM Command Line—To run the RACADM commands on the remote system.
  4. Based on your selection in the preceding step, provide the following:
    • If you selected Remote Server Administrator Command, then enter command, SSH port number, and select Generate Trusted Key for Linux if you want to generate a trusted key.
    • If you selected Generic Command, RACADM Command Line or IPMI Command then enter command and append output information. Providing the append output information is optional.
  5. On Task Target, do one of the following:
    • Select a query from the drop-down list, or create a query by clicking the New button.
    • Select server targets for running the commands. Only applicable targets are displayed by default. For more information, see Device Capability Matrix .
  6. On Schedule and Credentials, enter user credentials, and set schedule for the tasks from available options, and then click Finish. For information about the fields in the Create a Command Line Task wizard, see Command Line Task.
