SANtricity commands

Interactive mode


If you enter SMcli and a storage array name, but do not specify CLI parameters, script commands, or a script file, the command line interface runs in interactive mode. Interactive mode lets you run individual commands without prefixing the commands with SMcli.

In interactive mode, you can enter a single command, view the results, and enter the next command without typing the complete SMcli string. Interactive mode is useful for determining configuration errors and quickly testing configuration changes.

To end an interactive mode session, type the operating system-specific command. For Linux, this key combination is Control-D. For Windows, this key combination is Control-Z + ENTER.
