Hey guys,

I have around 28 3Par's I manage. Almost all of them are involved in remote copy.

Does anyone have a script that I can run daily or weekly that will report on the status of all of my remote copy groups to see if they are (Synced, Syncing, Stale, Stopped) and the last sync time?
That is basically all of the information I need, and i'd like it to be in CSV format, but if not i'll survive.

Also, is there anything I need to enable to run the script? Or would i have to use plink?

I don't use remote copy these days but I recommend working with the python sdk. I don't know if all functions are supported when it falls back to using ssh though, so I recommend running the wsapi service (cli reference doc has the commands needed to enable it).

https://github.com/hpe-storage/python-3parclient

There's a getRemoteCopyGroups function which should (depending on OS version) return the items from the tables starting on page 358 here:
https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public ... =c03606339

The function is just a GET request against https://<storage_server>:8080/v1/remotecopygroups if you'd rather not use the sdk or if you'd prefer to use powershell or something else to interact with the wsapi.

From there you can format the output however you want and run the script with cron.

Python supports ssh, and the process I can tell you is as follows:
-Open the list of your servers. Click the one you need and click the button "Instructions".
-Open a terminal (for Linux) or a command line (for Windows) on your computer. Enter the ssh username.
-The connection will ask you a password

I want to add some more words,
SSH or Secure Socket Shell, is a network protocol that provides a secure way to access a remote computer. Secure Shell provides strong authentication and secure encrypted data communications between two computers connecting over an insecure network such as the Internet.

Yeah the SDK does most functions with an API call, but some functions need SSH. Ran into this issue with a client implemented network ACLs and didnt't allow SSH.

The Powershell toolkit is good too.
