This command doesn’t work - tired on one of CVM - giving syntax error

If you’re still facing the issue, can you post the snippet of the command you’re executing and the error you’re receiving and the AOS version you’re using?

Hi

 

Try to NCLI with the following script:-

 

for alert in `ncli alert ls | grep ID | awk ‘{print $3}’`;  do echo “Resolving alert $alert”;  ncli alert resolve ids=$alert; sleep 2; done

 

or

 

Manually clear the alerts from SSH and restart the service:-

 

allssh genesis stop alert_manager
alert_tool -op clear-alerts
allssh 'rm ~/data/alert_manager/wals/*'
cluster start
