Changes in the CLI and script commands in this release

This topic lists changes in the latest SANtricity System Manager releases of the CLI command and Script commands.

Note: When issuing SMcli commands at the command prompt, an additional backslash (\) character is required as an escape character in the file path name of an input or output file when using the Windows OS. The additional backslash (\) must be included when using SMcli in secure, https mode, by providing the -u option to specify a role-based access management user. Example: C:\\dir\\subdir\\filename
Note: If you are currently using SANtricity 11.52 or earlier, you cannot upgrade to the latest version of SANtricity through the legacy CLI. Upgrades from SANtricity 11.52 to later versions can only be performed through the SMcli.
