YADBGT – Yet Another DataBase Grepping Tool

I’ve seen this before but finally used it. SK. Got it from our Diamond guy Taylor. Had to modify to make it work. You can use guidbedit to see all the fields you can grep.

Outputs all the gateways in the DMS database with their name, ip, appliance/open type, version number.

Wish they had this
# Check Point environment variables
. /opt/CPshared/5.0/tmp/.CPprofile.sh
# go to MDS context
# iterate over the customers

for CMA_NAME in $(ls -1 $MDSDIR/customers)
mdsenv ${CMA_NAME}
mcd 1>> /dev/null 2>> /dev/null
echo ” ”
echo “Security Gateways on CMA ${CMA_NAME} :”
echo “———————-”
$MDSDIR/bin/cpmiquerybin attr “” network_objects “type=’gateway’|type=’cluster_member’|type=’gateway_cluster'” -a __name__,ipaddr,svn_version_name,appliance_type

    One could also add a new entry to the conf file for mdsquerydb since mdsquerydb is actually a script thats sets up parameters before calling cpmiquerybin.

Life Stories from Dreez

These are stories from my travels. Generally I like to write stories about local people that I meet and also brag about living the retirement dream with my #1 wife Gaby. She is also my only wife.
