The
CA Spectrum
Command Line Interface (CLI) is a core
CA Spectrum
component and is installed with the core
CA Spectrum
product.
You can access
CA Spectrum
data and can execute
CA Spectrum
operations from the OneClick user interface. However, if you prefer to execute
CA Spectrum
operations from the command line, you can use the CLI. For those tasks that you cannot execute in OneClick, CLI is the only
CA Spectrum
resource available to you.
CLI is a powerful tool, but it does not provide the safeguards that OneClick does, especially related to modeling. CLI must be used by
CA Spectrum
administrators who understand the potentially harmful effects of haphazardly creating and destroying models and modifying model attributes on a network modeling scheme.
CLI is a flexible option. You can open a CLI session and issue commands from any of the command prompts that are available on your system, such as UNIX, DOS, and Bash.
