Currently i do some lab test to get in contact with the new Netsight V8.

Now SSH is directly useable within OneView (Web Browser). It works nice and very fast.



But i am looking for way to grep all the output (during the whole session) as i do in Putty.
In Putty i can do easy "Copy All to clipboard" or enable session logging to a local file.

Is in WebTerminal maybe also such a functionality ?

More options to improve:

+ There is no minimize button.
+ WebTerminal is not moveable outside browser windows.

I agree, WebShell is great but a copy/paste function would even make it more useful.

I can Ctrl-C / Ctrl-V from the WebShell to Notepad, but cannot find a way to paste into the webshell.

Thanks right - same issue.

But that is basic functionality.

Development has confirmed the basic functionality of the Webshell, an lack of an ability to log, etc.
Customers/Partners unsatisfied with the functionality can open C4 type (Feature request) cases to be considered.

Hi Mike,

do ypu know if there a plans to modify / enhance this Webshell ?

Copy and Paste is a must have feature ...

Logging is nice to have ...

Minimize button or make it in a separate Windows is also must have, because currently this windows overlay the rest of Netsight - so checking something is limited.

PS: I have not so much freetime to open for this demands each a CR ...

Regards,
Matthias

Bump for the above requests.  These requests are just the basics we use in putty.  I *love* that finally the credentials in the profile now let you autologin to the switch with the webshell.  

Just a point, hopefully that won't be taken wrong, but when a new feature is missing the basics like copy and paste, minimizing the window, logging etc, it looks like it wasn't tested out with people that use the feature on a day to day basis.

Does V8 has early access?

Yes. If you open an online case, we can can arrange for early access for you. It is meant for lab, non-critical operations at this point.
