Hello,

I want to collect logs from my FAS8040 in cluster mode for audit purposes. The only suitable cmdlet I've found is Get-NaSystemLog, which is not suitalbe for cluster mode. Is there any way to collect logs from powershel, without sending them via syslog, or email? Which cmdlet should I use?

The equivalent to "event log show" on the cluster is the Get-NcEmsMessage cmdlet.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi Glen,

 

Yes, you can use the "Read-NcFile" cmdlet so long as you know the full path to the file...

 

Read-NcFile -VserverContext $NodeName -Path /vol/vol0/etc/log/mlog/sktlogd.log

Vidad Cosonok has a very useful listing of the files in /etc/log and /etc/log/mlog here.

Hope that helps.
