The interface, output, and location in the directory hierarchy for scadm are uncommitted and might change. platform-name is the name of the platform implementation. Use the uname -i command to identify the platform implementation. See uname(1). The scadm utility has fifteen subcommands. Some subcommands have specific options and arguments associated with them. See SUBCOMMANDS, OPTIONS, OPERANDS, and USAGE. SUBCOMMANDS Subcommands immediately follow the scadm command on the command line, and are separated from the command by a <SPACE>. The following subcommands are supported date Display the SC's time and date The format for the date subcommand is: scadm date download Program the SC's firmware. There are two parts to the firmware, the boot monitor and the main image. By default, The scadm command's download programs the main firmware image. The boot argument selects programming of the boot monitor. The format for the download subcommand is: scadm download [boot] file help Display a list of commands. The format for the help subcommand is: scadm help loghistory Display the most recent entries in the SC event log. The format for the loghistory subcommand is: scadm loghistory resetrsc Reset the SC. There are two types of resets allowed, a hard reset and a soft reset.The hard reset is done by default. The soft reset can be selected by using the -s option. The format for the resetrsc subcommand is: scadm resetrsc [-s] send_event Manually send a text based event. The SC can forward the event to the SC event log. You can configure the -c option to send a critical warning to email, alert to logged in SC users, and syslog. Critical events are logged to sys- log(3C). There is an 80 character limit to the length of the associated text message. The format for the send_event subcommand is: scadm send_event [-c] "message" set Set SC configuration variables to a value. Examples of SC configuration variables include: SC IP address netsc_ipaddr and SC Customer Information sc_customer- info. See the output from the scadm help command for a complete list of SC configuration variables. The format for the set subcommand is: scadm set variable value show Display the current SC configuration variable settings. If no variable is specified, scadm shows all variable set- tings. The format for the show subcommand is: scadm show [variable] shownetwork Display the current network configuration parameters for SC. The format for the shownetwork subcommand is: scadm shownetwork useradd Add user accounts to the SC. The SC supports up to sixteen separate users. The format for the useradd subcommand is: scadm useradd username userdel Delete a user account from SC. The format for the userdel subcommand is: scadm userdel username userpassword Set a password for the user account specified. This password overrides any existing password currently set. There is no verification of the old password before setting the new password. The format for the userpassword subcommand is: scadm userpassword username userperm Set the permission level for the user. The format for the userperm subcommand is: scadm userperm username [aucr] usershow Display details on the specified user account. If a username is not specified, all user accounts are displayed. The format for the usershow subcommand is: scadm usershow username version Display the version numbers of the SC and its components. The format for the version subcommand is: scadm version [-v]
OPTIONS
The resetrsc, send_event, and version subcommands have associated options. Options follow subcommands on the command line and are separated from the subcommand by a <SPACE>. The resetrsc subcommand supports the following options: -s Perform a soft reset instead of a hard reset. A hard reset physically resets the SC hardware. The SC software jumps to the boot firmware, simulating a reset, for a soft reset. The send_event subcommand supports the following options: -c Send a critical event. Without the -c, -send_event sends a warning. The version subcommand supports the following options: -v Display a verbose output of version numbers and associated information.

If the subcommand has an option, the arguments follow the option on the command line and is separated from the option by a <SPACE>. If the subcommand does not have an option, the arguments follow the subcommand on the command line and are separated from the subcommand by a <SPACE>. If there are more than one arguments, they are separated from each other by a <SPACE>. The download subcommand supports the following arguments: boot Program the boot monitor portion of the flash. The main portion of the flash is programmed without any arguments file Specify file as the path to where the boot or main firmware image resides for download.
