Hi,

I recently started working on 3par. While I'm still getting used to the various terminologies, I feel it's better to keep an eye for scripting/automation.

Would Perl or Python be better? There appears to be a Python Module as well as a PowerShell module...anyone can suggest which would be a better one?

Regards,
pmu

I guess that depends on what kind of shop you are, if you are mostly Windows admins then Powershell would likely be best, if Linux then probably perl. The 3par Powershell kit is very weak, but you can just write powershell to call CLI commands, that is what I have been doing since before the Powershell kit was out, I also have some simple just windows batch scripts.

Trying to find a suitable scripting language for 3par . Need to get some show command output to excel. We are having an all windows environment. Checking on powershell , but it has different command set for 3par as part of the HPE 3par powershell kit. Can we just write powershell to just call usual 3par CLI commands as well (Like we do normally do while SSH into 3par ). Or Python can be used to call 3par CLI commands. Python also has HPE3parclient package which again shows different 3par command set.
