console [ --help ] [ --db <dbname> ] device


DESCRIPTION

This script delivers a usable "terminal" connection, via telnet, to the console port of a device if the device supports it. NOTE: if the device is front-ended by a DS2_RPC type device the DS2_RPC menu will be presented and the user will have to select the appropriate selection from that menu to access the desired device.


OPTIONS

--db <dbname> Filename of the cluster database to use.

--xterm Open a Xterm window for the console

--help Print manpage.


NOTES

Set the environment variable CLUSTER_CONFIG to the location of the cluster database, for example /cluster/machine/machine_name.


FILES

The default paths for location of the database, cloned directories, and other defaults are recorded in $CLUSTER_CONFIG/CConf.pm.
