  1. Hi Kirsten, could you please point me to a onefs 7.1 cli guide? The one you linked up above tells me that I\’m not authorized and doesn\’t provide me with a means of logging in. The only other link that I can find to this document is here.


    But this one tells me that the page is simply not found, I get this error whether or not I\’m logged in.

    Seems like this should be a fairly simple document to find, but I\’m coming up empty so far. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Hi Phil. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. We\’re working on fixing the broken link. In the meantime, we attached a PDF of the OneFS 7.1 CLI administration guide to the same page: https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-34523. You\’ll need to log in to the EMC Community Network (ECN) to download it, or register a new account on the ECN if you don\’t already have one. Hope this helps.
