Save storage array state capture

The save storageArray stateCapture command saves the state capture of a storage array to a file.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600 and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin role.


save storageArray stateCapture file="filename"


Parameter Description

The file path and the file name to which you want to save the state capture. Enclose the file name in double quotation marks (" "). For example:

file="C:\Program Files\CLI\logs\state.txt"

You can use any file name, but you must use the .txt extension.

The default name of the file that contains the state capture is state-capture-data.txt. This command does not automatically append a file extension to the saved file. You must specify a file extension when entering the file name.
