Now for the fun commands you’ve been looking for:

Launch Support Mode
support exec bash

To enter a BASH shell
su exec bash

Various “Netstat” and netstat_test commands…some of the most useful networking commands I’ve used so far:
netstat -i
nstat_test -p 0
nstat_test -r
nstat_test -t

“Cache Tool”

Reveal NetBSD
uname -a

“RAIDTOOL” for displaying RAID Info, especially useful in watching the rebuilds with percentages

Replication Tuning – TCP

Restart the Equallogic Management Service (Note: You must close and re-launch the Group Manager application after running these commands)

eqlinit restart-snap MgmtExec
support eqlinit “restart MgmtExec”

Check the status od the MgmtExec Service
eqlinit status

DOWN and UP ETH Ports … first select the Array that you want to operate on (the example connects to array JERMSMIT-01, then toggles eth0 off and then on again)
member select JERMSMIT-01
eth select 0 down
eth select 0 up

“UNAME” (unsure what this is actually doing…)
uname -a

Restart the Network Management service
