I am a newbie of netapp filer but have a question here.
we developed a script which can retrieve data based on the following output of DFM commands. It works well and can generate a report for us showing the aggr utilization, volume utilization.........and etc.
dfm report storage-systems-report
dfm report view aggregates-capacity
dfm report view volumes-capacity
dfm lun list
but we have another two netapp filers in a seperated network zone. I can't install DFM since the audit rule don't allow 443 and 80.......but we need to get the report for these 2 netapp filers.....
so I am wondering is there any script via which we can log in Netapp filer and collect data automatically?
or I plan to develop a script which can log in netapp filer via "expect" and execute some commands......but I am not sure if there is better idea.....
please help point the right direction!
thanks in advance!
