scp export error


My problem is:

when i'm using cli command "scp export configuration to user1@x.x.x.x:/home from running-config.xml" - all works perfect or "scp export log-file data-plane to user1@x.x.x.x:/home" - perfect.

And if i try "scp export logdb to user1@x.x.x.x:/home" - i get error message "'cat' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." Same error message with "scp export log data to user1@x.x.x.x:/home start-time equal 2014/03/01@01:00:00 end-time equal 2014/03/20@01:00:00".

Do any have the same problem or any solution? Thanks.

Re: scp export error

Hello Interface,

Are you using a windows server for SCP log export..?

Since we can have many lines of logs to export, the system cannot afford to redirect the output to a temp file and then scp it out (both in terms of disk space requirement and speed), Instead, the query log is streamed to ssh via a pipe, and then to the remote system's unix "cat" command

Something like this

pan_logquery | ssh user@remote "cat > /path/to/remote/filesystem"

So, Cannot redirect to a Windows server and need a Linux server or need to install Cigwin on Windows.

There is a BUG opened for this issue ( BUG-59472).

Hello Interface,

If you are using windows server for SCP export the SCP export functionality to windows based severs is not supported. Currently we only support Linux based SCP server for export.
