The system node autosupport invoke-diagnostic command sends an AutoSupport message from a node containing basic content from all subsystems along with troubleshooting and diagnostic content from specified subsystems.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node

Use this parameter to specify the node from which the AutoSupport message is sent.

[-message-subject <text>] - Message Included in the AutoSupport Subject

Use this parameter to specify text sent in the subject line of the AutoSupport message.

[-uri <text>] - Alternate Destination for This AutoSupport

Use this parameter to send the AutoSupport message to the destination you specify instead of the configured destination. Only "file", "mailto" and "https" protocols are supported. If this parameter is omitted, the message is sent to the all of the recipients defined by the system node autosupport modify command.

[-force <true>] - Generate and Send Even if Disabled

This flag indicates this AutoSupport should be generated and delivered even if the AutoSupport configuration is disabled. If "0", then obey the normal "state", "support" and "diagnostic-content-state" flags. If this is "1", then ignore the "state", "support" and "diagnostic-content-state".

-subsystems <subsys1,subsys2,…​>,…​ - Subsystems to Collect Basic, Troubleshooting & Diagnostic Content

Use this mandatory parameter to include basic, troubleshooting, and diagnostic configuration content from the subsystems you specify. Content is collected from the "mandatory" subsystem and the subsystems you specify. You can specify up to four subsystems.


The following example sends a diagnostic AutoSupport message from a node named myNode containing information from the "mandatory" subsystem and basic, troubleshooting and diagnostic contents from "raid", "wafl" and "ha" subsystems:

cluster1::> system node autosupport invoke-diagnostic -node myNode -subsystems raid,wafl,ha
