This issue has been solved. See solution.

Can someone explain to me how to copy files from an appliance to a Windows client? I hve tried utilities such as Winscp and PSCP without any luck.

Which appliance model are you referring to?

On our 5220's think Winscp worked fine on 2.5 but after installing 2.5.1 wouldn't work anymore.

Try this from maintainance (elevate)

mv /admin/.bashrc /admin/.bashrc.back

You should now be able to connect WINSCP to the appliance using the admin account. When finished remember to run the reverse.

mv /admin/.bashrc.back /admin/.bashrc

Cheers

Sorry ours is a 5220 and on 2.5.1 as well. Ed I will give you commands a try an report back. Also do you have any documentation or could you explain what the commands do? I am fairly new to the Appliance/Linux environment, so trying to learn everything I can.

What files do you need?

If they are logs of any sort then just go to Support - Logs - Share Open and map a drive to \\appliancename\logs\ using appliancename\admin and your password

This displays the O/S, Appliance and NetBackup logs all within that folder.

It is also handy as you can go into the O/S (Support - Maintenance) and cp a file to say /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/ and then see it in the logs share to copy it off

Hope this helps
