Working with Network Shell
Using the Network Shell (NSH) commands, you can manage your network of UNIX and Windows machines as one large host. You can perform system administrative functions on multiple remote hosts from a single machine. Instead of having to rlogin or telnet to a host to see what is going is on, or to make a quick change, you can just use the NSH commands to access files on local and remote hosts directly from the command line. You can use the NSH commands to write new scripts, or modify existing scripts and make them distributed.
See Creating and modifying Network Shell Script Jobs for information about Network Shell Script Jobs, which let you deploy and execute a Network Shell (NSH) script that you have previously saved in the Depot.
See the NSH cheat sheet for examples of frequently used NSH commands and script elements that can help you get started with writing NSH scripts.
