Multi-server interactive shell


Multi-server interactive shell is useful when you need to run different commands on a list of servers for which you would need to login individually to the servers. For example, when you need to edit a files on server. This feature would automatically logon to the next server in a list of servers and repeat the process  in a sequential fashion until it goes through all the servers in the mExec interactive list or the ServerGroup list, thus saving you the time to manually enter the servers.


To use Multi-server interactive shell, get to the Multi-server menu to get the lists of server or different server groups. Choose the ServerGroup or Mexec list name and press F8 or /  after choiwhile on the Server Group Menu . Select the list or group of servers and press 'Enter' key. You will be asked for confirmation before you login to each server. Type 'y' and press 'Enter' key to login to the prompted server. Entering 's' instead of 'y' will skip logging into the prompted server in the list/group this time. Entering 'x' will quit from the Multi-server interactive shell.



After you login to one server, do whatever you want on that server. When exiting from that server, you will be prompted again for the next server.
