Parameter Description


The controller with the NVSRAM values that you want to save. Valid controller identifiers are a or b, where a is the controller in slot A, and b is the controller in slot B. Enclose the controller identifier in square brackets ([ ]).


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

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

The default name of the file that contains the NVSRAM values is nvsram-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.
