Upload Logs using SCP

Setting up non-interactive file transfers using SCP instead of SFTP is very useful for continuous log uploads.

Use Password based authentication

In order to use password-based authentication for SCP, set the password with the following nsshell command:

#nsshell> auth change-password nstransfer

This configures the password for the nstransfer admin used for uploading log files. Now you can SCP the logs by entering this command:

#scp <filename> nstransfer@<system_IP>:upload/<parser-name>
Use Public-key authentication

If desired, the private key used for SFTP access described in the previous section can be used instead of a password by entering this command:

#scp -i <key_file><filename> nstransfer@<system_IP>:upload/<parser-name>
