Save storage array diagnostic data
save storageArray diagnosticData command saves the storage array diagnostic data from either the controllers or the environmental services modules (ESMs) to a file.
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.
You can review the file contents at a later time. You can also send the file to technical support for further review.
After you have saved the diagnostic data, you can reset the NVSRAM registers that contain the diagnostic data so that the old data can be overwritten. Use the
reset storageArray diagnosticData command to reset the diagnostic data registers.
Run this command only with the assistance of technical support.
