Log in

To access the CLI, you must first log in to the management system using a terminal application.

If the CLI and the MDM do not reside on the same server, add the --mdm_ip parameter to all CLI commands.

In a non-clustered environment, use the MDM IP address. In a clustered environment, use the IP addresses of the primary and secondary MDMs, separated by a comma. For example:

scli --mdm_ip 10.10.10.3,10.10.10.4 --login --username supervisor1 --password password1
			 

You will be prompted to enter the password.

When using LDAP, include the LDAP domain in the command. For more information on LDAP, see PowerFlex User Roles and LDAP Usage Technical Notes. For example:
scli --mdm_ip 10.10.10.3,10.10.10.4 --login --username JohnDoe@ldap.acme.com --password password1 --ldap_authentication
		  

The default user created during setup is the SuperUser, with the admin username.
