Gathering configuration and log data from StorEdge 6120

This is something you will most likely have to do at least once in your professional carrier. 

Everything breaks so Sun storages also and fist thing Sun Support will ask you is to collect configuration and log data from the 6120. 

But no worries, they will send/email you t3xtr, which is Perl script for gathering this data. 

I bet you already have Perl installed, but if you don't have, again no worries. A Perl interpreter is included, so you even don't need to install Perl. 

Data is collected from the 6120 via its Ethernet connection, so you need to make sure your host can access required subnet. 

Of course, you need to know 6120's password. 

So get the file T3extractor-1.10.tar from Sun (maybe you can find somewhere on there site, please check). 

Extract is and you'll get stuff like below:
/tmp/T3extractor-1.10# ls
total 128
drwxr-xr-x   3 root     other        376 May  3  2005 .
drwxrwxrwt   4 root     sys         1476 Sep 11 17:02 ..
drwxr-xr-x   4 root     other        237 Jan 29  2004 perlx
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other       1722 May  3  2005 README
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other         34 Jan 29  2004 t3hosts.example
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     other      22799 May  3  2005 t3xtr
Call the t3xtr to gather data from the 6120, say hostname is milan
/tmp/T3extractor-1.10# ./t3xtr milan

This will create the file t3data.83c4455d.frame-2009. Email this to Sun. You can also: # tar -xvf t3data.83c4455d.frame-2009. # cd t3data.83c4455d.frame-2009. And explore data by yourself.
