AutoSupport options...


Hi All


When using cluster mode. Is it possible to have AutoSupports sent to an internal Web server location as opposed to using a SMTP server..?


My AutoSupports cannot be sent direct to netapp as there is no external connectivity and SMTP is a blocked protocol on our network.

So getting a zipped package is difficult.

From the below link it looks like it can be sent out to an FTP site (which i assume could be internal)



However again FTP is an unsupported insecure protocol. SFTP would probably work for us however it does not state that is is supported.


At the moment I am having to copy each file out of an Autosupport created via the console from the SPI in to a folder on my local PC.





If its possible, it may be acceptable (though not ideal) to enable the option if it is still present to copy the file straight out of a CIFS session browsed directly to the ETC$ folder (as you would with 7Mode.


Can this be enabed as a temporary measure in order to grab a copy of the AutoSupport log dump..?
