To execute the data collection scripts on Unix/Linux systems:
- Place the M42DataCollectionUnix directory including all its files in any folder on the target systems.
- Ensure that the owner of the directory is root
- Ensure that the access rights for the directory, incl. subdirectories is set to 700 (rwx------)
- 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.
