How USB mount to 7210 controller?

Hello!

 

How USB mounted to 7210?
Exactly I have to know - how USB named.

Have no access to CLI of Controller, and in GUI don't see this information.

 

When try to copy files from controller - wrong partition.

 

Thank you!

Re: How USB mount to 7210 controller?

usb should be fat32 formatted, put it in the 7200 and then use show storage to check it has mounted.

 

(sg-7210) #show storage
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
none                      2.0G     18.6M      2.0G   1% /tmp
/dev/usb/flash3           1.5G    110.3M      1.3G   8% /flash
/dev/usbdisk/slot0/1      7.4G    186.0M      7.3G   2% /mnt/usbdisk/slot0/1
(sg-7210) #

 

note the "partition" number, here is 1  (i.e. /mnt/usbdisk/slot0/<partition #>).

 

then, you can use CLI as follows:

 

>> put something on it

(sg-7210) #copy flash: default.cfg usb: partition 1 default_11jan15.cfg
....File default.cfg copied to /mnt/usbdisk/slot0/1/default_11jan15.cfg successfully.
(sg-7210) #

 

>> perform directory listing

(sg-7210) #dir usb: partition 1
Listing /mnt/usbdisk/slot0/1


-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root     97505424 Jan  8 09:22 6.4.2.3_47524.img
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         4096 Jan 12  2015 Arubaimage
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root           11 Jan 12  2015 blah.TXT
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        37439 Jan 11 19:23 default_11jan15.cfg

(sg-7210) #

 

>> perform upgrade image

(sg-7210) #show image v

Note: If you want to use the front panel to do the upgrade, you need to ensure the image is in a subdirectory called Arubaimage as noted in the userguide in the section "Using the LCD Screen", but if you just want to access and use the USB after the controller has booted, then this doesn't have to be the case.

Thank you for reply!!!

 

BUT

 

I can copy configuration to usb-flash through CLI, but Customer want to periodically backup config, he don't know CLI, so he want to backup through GUI.

In GUI I can't find name of partition.

I have to type in GUI, in COPY-TO-USB menu, this?

/dev/usbdisk/slot0/1

Re: How USB mount to 7210 controller?

That is correct.

 

The more practical way would be to copy it off to a server via SCP or FTP.

 

Do you have AirWave? AirWave backs up the controller every night.

Hi everyone!!

 

For doing it via GUI, at least in ArubaOS 6.4 or 6.5 (I don't know if you can do it in older versions), you can go to Maintenance->Files->Copy Files there make the selection of the file to copy in source, and then in destination checks USB and write 1 on partition and the nameofthefile in the name box.
