Configuring Perl

The TrueSight Server Automation Console and Network Shell both support the Perl scripting language. If you are using Perl, you should configure the Application Server so it knows the location of the Perl executable.

  1. Start the Application Server Administration console, as described in Starting the Application Server Administration console.
  2. Specify the path and name of the Perl executable by entering the following:
    set perlconfig location <pathToPerl>
    where <pathToPerl> is a Network Shell path, such as /c/perl/bin/perl.exe.
  3. To validate that you have properly configured Perl, enter the following command:
    show perlconfig all
    The following response should be returned:
  4. Restart the Application Server.
