  2. Launch > Applications > Utilities > Terminal

SHM uses BCG commands directly to export the inventory data, for more information refer to BCG User Guide Reference. Path for BCG base directory: cd /opt/ericsson/nms_umts_wran_bc g/bin.

For BB Radios (SHM)

user@oss> cd /opt/ericsson/nms_umts_wran_bcg/bin
user@oss> ./bcgtool.sh -e YourFileName.xml

NOTE : these parameters can be extracted in Bulk CM dump. So, if you have a Bulk CM Export, you don’t need to export/process this data.

For DU Radios (SMO)

user@oss> smocpp
smocpp> export -hw
smocpp> export -sw
smocpp> export -lic
smocpp> exit
user@oss>

Files exported to: /var/opt/ericsson/nms_smo_srv/smo_file_store/Export/CPP/

Exporting 4G ERBS Inventory via CLI

TBD

Via ENM

TBD

Start an inventory 3GPP data export job

Run the following command to export in 3GPP format, hardware and software data.

shm export

Note: this will export all inventory

You can also use:

  • shm export -hw: to export in 3GPP format, only hardware inventory data
  • shm export -sw: to export in 3GPP format, only software inventory data
  • shm export -lic: to export in 3GPP format, only license inventory data

Check progress of export job

Use the job ID, checking inventory export command response

And run the command:

cmedit export -st --job #no

Where #no is the Job ID

Download the results of export job

Download the Generated Export File

You can download the file:

  1. Using any FTP Client you want (like for example Filezilla). Just check the path under “File name” field of Job Status.
    In this case, you can search for your files at: /ericsson/batch/data/export/3gpp_export/
    Tip: If you haven’t renamed it, it starts with “export_INVENTORY”.

  2. Or you can download it via browser.
    For this, simply run the command:

cmedit export -dl -j #no

This command will download the export file to the client browser.
