Accessing a node's log, core dump, and MIB files by using a web browser

The Service Processor Infrastructure (spi) web service is enabled by default to enable a web browser to access the log, core dump, and MIB files of a node in the cluster. The files remain accessible even when the node is down, provided that the node is taken over by its partner.

Before you begin

About this task

The spi web service is enabled by default, and the service can be disabled manually (vserver services web modify -vserver * -name spi -enabled false).

The "admin" role is granted access to the spi web service by default, and the access can be disabled manually (services web access delete -vserver cluster_name -name spi -role admin).


  1. Point the web browser to the spi web service URL in one of the following formats:
    • http://cluster-mgmt-LIF/spi/
    • https://cluster-mgmt-LIF/spi/
    cluster-mgmt-LIF is the IP address of the cluster management LIF.
  2. When prompted by the browser, enter your user account and password.
    After your account is authenticated, the browser displays links to the /mroot/etc/log/, /mroot/etc/crash/, and /mroot/etc/mib/ directories of each node in the cluster.
