Command Center Command: Overview


The Command Center is an executable that runs on the CWMGR1 Platform Server in the Deployment. It is accessed by connecting to the CWMGR1 VM and executing it locally on that VM.

This application was designed for troubleshooting, diagnostic and advanced management functions. This application is primarily used by NetApp’s internal development and support teams however some functions are occasionally used by customer admins. This documentation is provided to support the use of selection functions. Use of these commands should be done with care and in collaboration with the NetApp support team.
