definitive Shell command guide?
« on: February 18, 2009, 09:24:37 AM »
it seems over the years..  mitel support along with other techs and even on this forum give out commands for specific testing / diagnostic purposes...  however most if not all of these are undocumented in the help system / tech handbook...

is there anywhere a definitive guide to all these specialized commands and what they do?

some are entered in VXworks..  others in RTC shell, plus also diagnostics info being printed on say port 2001 etc..

I know I have tried to get mitel support to share.... I even said "come on we were one of the top 5 hospitality sales last year" but they still wouldnt.... they are probably worried about guys like me that would try every command just to see what it does.....  hehehe

Get this one...   I was trying to come up with the software to communicate via IP to the Shell.  (Didn't know Putty could do it at the time)
I was told that they didn't want me IP'ing into the shell becuase we might enter commands to screw things up.   Huh??  I can plug a console cable in but not IP?  yeah......

what mitel probably meant was they dudnt want you IPing into the RTC..  I was told by mitel Never to use the CDE forms in the RTC shell..  and on one of ,my lab systems purposely made programming changes in the RTC shell  (old sx-2000 forms) and sure enough corrupted the database....   at the time I was trying to come up with a faster modem dialup procedure rather than the MAP and using the bandwidth heavy ESM.... (so,me of our customers dont like giving us IP access)

Nope.  They meant the command shell.

Hi, you can get away with programming via the backdoor sx2000 style gui but the only way to ensure that the changes are reflected on the esm gui is to do a data restore. As for the shell commands, no way are Mitel gonna give them out unless it is in their interest like the one they give out to turn off visual vmail following their cockup in 8 ur3, this command is given out in the release notes for 8 ur5  ;)

Here are some of the commands shamelessly stolen from another site

iPVM_Status - displays status of embedded VM
iPVM_Stop - stops embedded VM
iPVM_Start - starts embedded VM
ShowDspStatus - shows status of DSP's
ps - shows active processes and time running
i - shows all current tasks (warning: output is very large)
arptabShow - shows active ARP table (IP's and MAC's on local network)
ping "<target ip address>" - ping test, use <Ctrl-C> to exit
bootChange - edit bootline parameters
version - displays bootline parameters
relink_version - shows if any relinks (patches) have been applied
revs - displays bootrom versions

Here's a handful of others.
1. slotallinfo - this command shows what type of card is installed in each slot.
2. DumpDspBootInfo - this commands shows DSP resource allocation.
3. DspSslStatus - this command shows the current and total DSP resource used.
4. DspDebugOutput 2 - this command forces command #3 to output to the RTC shell.
