Show Tech: Onbox Agents (CLI)

We recommend using the Apstra GUI to obtain onbox agent show tech files, but you have the option of using the Apstra server Linux CLI instead, as described below.

  1. SSH to the device.
  2. For Arista only, run bash to go the Arista Networks EOS shell.
  3. For Cisco only, run guestshell.
  4. From the device, run the sudo aos_show_tech --platform <platform> command where <platform> is the platform you're using: eos, nxos, or sonic. The file is generated and copied to the /tmp directory. See below for SONiC example:
  5. Locate the file archive in the /tmp directory (for example, aos_show_tech_20200401_034527.tar.gz) and copy it, via SCP, to a local computer with the ability to upload.
  6. Upload the show tech file to your customer case.
