How to get a list of neighbor model handles of a model using the Spectrum Command Line Interface (CLI)

Environment

Release: Any version of Spectrum
Component:

Resolution

The CLI 0x1001f update action can be used to get a list of neighbor model handles of a model.

./update action=0x1001f mh=<device's model handle> 

This command will show the model handle of the neighbor model for the model specified in the update command.

Here are the steps:

1. Login to SpectroSERVER system as the user that owns the Spectrum installation

2. If on Windows, start a bash shell by running "bash -login"

3. cd to the $SPECROOT/vnmsh directory and enter the following command to start a CLI session:

./connect

4. Enter the following command where <MH> is the model handle of the device model:

./update action=0x1001f mh=<MH>

The following is an example of the output seen from this command:

./update action=0x1001f mh=0x46e147
update action: successful
Response has 35 attributes:
 0) Attribute 0x0 text: **** Primary_neighbors:
 1) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4015ca
 2) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x401607
 3) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x402298
 4) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4442c4
 5) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x444313
 6) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x444481
 7) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4448ad
 8) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4582b7
 9) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4582de
 10) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4b2b91
 11) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4fd38b
 12) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4fd351
 13) Attribute 0x0 model: 0x4b8786

The fourth column of data is the model handle of a neighbor device model for the model specified in the update command.
