Generate a sosreport prior to 2019.2.7ΒΆ

This section describes how to generate a sosreport for MCP versions prior to the MCP 2019.2.7 maintenance update. In this case, the sosreport tool works without Salt orchestration.

To generate a sosreport:

  1. Log in to the Salt Master node.

  2. Download the latest available sosreport package for the required nodes. For example:

    salt -C '<target>' 'curl -o sosreport.deb<version>.deb  && dpkg -i sosreport.deb'
  3. Run the sosreport command on the target nodes to generate a report for the entire system. For a list of possible options, run sosreport --help.
