    Here is a way to solve the
    problem of a customer wanting a single file to download for both their config as well as their policy file in EXOS.

    First you need to edit the
    code:
    exshrc.xsf
    file by using the
    code:
    vi
    utility in EXOS by typing
    code:
    vi exshrc.xsf
    . Details on how to use vi are in the docs.

    In the
    code:
    exshrc.xsf
    file, I added a line that exits to the Linux shell, tars the two files together and saves that tar file in the
    code:
    usr/local/cfg
    directory which can be access from EXOS.

    Here is the line to be put into the exshrc.xsf :
    code:
    alias tar-pol-cfg "run script shell.py cd /usr/local/cfg/;tar cvf your_filename.tar your_policy.pol primary.cfg"


    When you exit back into EXOS and type
    code:
    ls
    to list the files, you see the “
    code:
    your_filename.tar
    ” listed in the directory which you canSCP off or save as one file via XMC or other method.

    Upload debug would do almost the same for you.
