DotHill - Gather Logs

Ivan Lawrence -

Tested on a 3730

Prerequisite: FTP must be enabled from within the DotHill GUI or SSH (set protocols ftp enabled)

Do not do this from a Windows terminal ftp, it does not work! 

From a Linux terminal, navigate to the directory you would like the logs to be downloaded to then type:

ftp {IP of DotHill}

Login as user "manage", default password is "!manage"

If no filename is applied the default name will be "logs".

get logs [filename]

This will zip and download the log to the current directory of the local ftp session.

Here is a sample session capture:
