> Could someone please tell me if there is a way to add a variable to a command file for processing with nlogin? For example I want to issue the following command on 170 simliar devices: "get event > tftp 192.168.1.1 <ROUTERNAME>.log" The <ROUTERNAME> needs to be unique for each device. I don't care if it's the device's IP or hostname or whatever...as long as it is unique. Hostname or IP would be nice though :-)
as shawn suggested, process one device at a time and wrap it in a shell script
which passes -E to the script and use -s with your own script OR use -c
instead of -E=.
> Also when using nlogin or clogin what's the easiest way to specify a large number of remote devices? I've got like 380+ firewalls and routers that I'd like to issue a nlogin/clogin against. I know the command line gives you the option to list each deviceon the same command line...but I was looking for something a little more manageable. I'd eventually like to automate this...or script it.
