Video - Snap Creator 4.1 - scdump

If you have ever opened a Snap Creator case with NetApp, or even sometimes posting here on the communities, you may have been asked or seen someone be asked for a scdump.

scdump compiles (at the profile level) Snap Creator configuration files, log files, server logs, and environmental details into a zip file that can easily be sent to support.

This video walks through the process both via the Snap Creator CLI and the GUI:
