    How to collect/generate "Show All" report for HP c-Class Blade Enclosures

    There are multiple methods to generate "SHOW ALL" report of Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect of a HP C-Class Enclosure.


    A Show All report would be the first thing requested by HPE engineers to debug a case or issue observed on the enclosure or blades.

    How to collect OA Show All report using OA GUI?

    Login to Onboard Administration GUI using a browser having java.

    Next navigate to "Enclosure Settings" -> "Configuration Scripts" under "Systems and Devices" as shown below

    Click on "SHOW ALL" which will generate the report on a new TAB of the browser.
    NOTE: It may take some time for the complete report to get generated


    How to collect OA Show All report using vcsu?

    VCSU stands for virtual connect support utility. This can be used to collect OA as well as Virtual Conect (VC) Show All report and the same can be used on Linux as well as Windows platform.

    Download vcsu using the below link for Windows Platform
    vcsu-1.12.0

    NOTE: This link takes you to a third party website.

    Install the vcsu utility on your laptop/desktop and navigate to the below folder.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett Packard Enterprise\Virtual Connect Support Utility

    The above location may vary depending upon the vcsu version and architecture.

    Here click "VCSU-CommandPrompt.cmd" or open a "command prompt" by clicking "Shift + Right mouse (touchpad) button" and select "Open command window here" as shown below

    And type the below command in the provided syntax on the command window

    Syntax:
    vcsu -a  collect -i <OA_IP> -u HPadmin -p <OA_HPadmin_Password> -vcu HPadmin -vcp <VC_HPadmin_Password>
    For eg:
    vcsu -a  collect -i 192.168.0.100 -u HPadmin -p Passw0rd -vcu HPadmin -vcp Passw0rd

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett Packard Enterprise\Virtual Connect Support Utility>vcsu -a  collect -i 192.168.0.100 -u HPadmin -p Passw0rd -vcu HPadmin -vcp Passw0rd
