opauploadall (8) - Linux Man Pages



(Linux) Copies one or more files from a group of hosts to this system. Since the file name is the same on each host, a separate directory on this system is created for each host and the file is copied to it. This is a convenient way to upload log files or configuration files for review. This tool can also be used in conjunction with opadownloadall to upload a host specific configuration file, edit it for each host, and download the new version to all the hosts.

NOTE: To copy files from this host to hosts in the cluster, use opascpall or opadownloadall. user@ style syntax cannot be used when specifying filenames.
