Hi Netapp specialists,

 

i have one problem with the cf config check tool.

How i can run this an windows 7?

I get everytime the error "ssh not found" or "rsh not found"!

Which toolset i have to install that the tool works?

Any idea?

 

The tool is very useful in my opinion and i want to run this after every installation.

 

Kind rigards

Stefan

Hi,

Good question, indeed!

Have a look into this thread:

RSH is not part of Windows 7 and can't be copied over from an older version, (like XP's rsh)

I have not found a suitable replacement and have had to resort to using a VM of XP to do some of the scripts that use RSH.

Did you try installing cygwin ? Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows

That should have both rsh and ssh.

Also in Windows 7 Enterprise there is Subsystem for Unix Applications, it should contain ssh/rsh client.

Hi Stefan,

In the absence of rsh and ssh in Windows, you could have other tools - may be plink (from putty) that would work as a ssh client from Windows. cf_config_check.cgi has a '-r' options. You can specify any executable path here, and the script would use that to connect to the system and issue commands and get you the results for High Availability configuration check.

Thx

Somewhat related, but not so - see my post here on problems when trying to run PerfMon in Windows 7 (& Server 2008 R2) to view counters from the filer: http://communities.netapp.com/message/37841

  • Radek wrote that the link https://communities.netapp.com/thread/8768is within Sales Engineering Community (for NetApp & Partner SEs) & that's probably why you can't access it.
  • In turn, he provided this link http://communities.netapp.com/blogs/fitforpurpose/2009/11/27/netapp-storage-system-automation-using-ssh-instead-rsh, which basically suggests to use Plink instead.
  • I installed Utilities and SDK for Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications in Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 on my Windows 7 PC. I needed to add the following directory to my %PATH%, C:\Windows\SUA\bin, since it contains all of the *NIX utils such as awk, grep, and . . . RSH.
  • Although now I can run RSH, I still cannot (as of this post) get perfstat to run, nor does perfmon work in viewing the filer counters properly.

The mystery continues . . .

I got this to work with the Windows Server 2008 UNIX Interoperability Components and using the rsh -D option.
