Ack & delete alarms from CLI

Can I acknowledge and/or delete all alarms for the cli?  The command dfm event ack and dfm event delete do not accept wildcards.


Re: Ack & delete alarms from CLI

It doesn’t take any wildcard.

But you can use something like this, if yours is a linux dfm server.

for i in `dfm alarm list -q | awk '{ print $1 }'`; do dfm alarm delete $i ; done

for I in dfm event list –q | awk awk '{ print $1 }'`; do dfm event ack $i;dfm event delete $i;done.

This is Windows.  Thanks I'll have to come up with something similar.

Attaching the script that prasad, pointed in the earlier post here, for the convinence of others as that is a closed community.

And not everyone might have access.

Try this in an elevated Powershell console:



$command="dfm event delete "; $i=<starting event ID>; while( $i -lt <ending event ID>) { $command += $i; $command += " " ; $i++}; invoke-expression $command

No NetApp PS tools required in this case.

If your range is too great it might hit a maximum line/command length limit in PS, if there is one. I ack'd then deleted about 500 events in one go without a hitch.
