Hi Dawn,

Could you please elaborate on this..
"You can use the Display/Alter/Dump service function to invoke the batteryinfo Advanced Analysis feature to display the status of your cache batterie"

I am looking for a programming way to get the cache battery info but unable to find a way. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Tom.

Hi Tom,
The Display/Alter/Dump service function is an interactive interface through System Service Tools (STRSST).

For a programmatic interface, you will want to look at the PTFs I reviewed - they give you a program to call to get the status. The output from the program call goes to a spooled file.

Hope this helps.
Dawn

For obsolete hardware which will not run these new ptf's, nor have the display cache battery option in SST you do it this way:
STRSST
1. Start a service tool
4. Display/Alter/Dump
1. Display/Alter storage
2. Licensed Internal Code (LIC) data
14. Advanced analysis
1=Select BATTERYINFO
Options . . . . . -list -all
But that really doesn't tell you jack
Concurrently Can Be
Resource Serial Type Frame Card Maintainable Safely
Name Number Model ID Position Battery Pack Replaced
DC09 YL1088121002 57B7-001 3C00 C9 Yes No
You miss all the date information.

Doesn't the newer SST option show you so much more information than the old Advanced Analysis method?
