Allowing supplemental commands on the Snap Creator Agent

Download PDF of this page

If you want to run a supplemental command on the Snap Creator Agent, you must explicitly permit the command to be executed by including it in the allowed_commands.config file on the Agent.

allowed_commands.config is located in the etc subdirectory of the Snap Creator Agent installation directory. For example:

  • On UNIX hosts, /install/path/scAgent4.1.x/etc/allowed_commands.config

  • On Windows hosts, C:\Program Files\NetApp\Snap_Creator_Framework\scAgent4.1.x\etc\allowed_commands.config

To allow supplemental commands on the Agent, open allowed_commands.config in an editor. Enter each command on its own line, exactly as you would enter the command at a command prompt. Case is significant. Make sure to specify the fully qualified pathname. Enclose the pathname in quotation marks if it contains spaces. For example:

"C:\Program Files\NetApp\SnapDrive\sdcli.exe"

Restart the Agent for the changes to take effect.

For security reasons, you should not use a wildcard entry (*) to allow all commands.
