Running the scripts on Unix/Linux

To execute the data collection scripts on Unix/Linux systems:

  1. Place the M42DataCollectionUnix directory including all its files in any folder on the target systems.
  2. Ensure that the owner of the directory is root
  3. Ensure that the access rights for the directory, incl. subdirectories is set to 700
  4. Run the following command as user root:
# cd <path>/M42DataCollectionUnix/bin
# ./M42DataCollection.sh

Running the script will generate files and put them in the M42DataCollectionUnix/results directory. In addition, a compressed <hostname>. tar file with contents of the output directory will be created.  This resulting <hostname>. tar file must be collected for each server system.
