  • and many more features are coming up soon!

    How do I use the new features?

    If you want to set a situation to true value on a particular managed system, you can use the alertsit/resurfacesit method call.
    perl gbscmd alertSit --server itm61 --situation --source [--data "Alert text"]

    The following gbscmd shows the currently running situations on the given managed system. If you omit the --managedsystem switch, it will list the running situations on all managed systems.
    perl gbscmd showsit --server itm61 --managedsystem Primary:viking:NT

    The following command retrieves the information about all managed systems from EIB table using CT_Get call. It is similar to tacmd listsystems.
    perl gbscmd ct_get --server itm61 --object ManagedSystem
