How to Use the Status Command

Easily monitor the status of store tasks or protection plans from the command line

To see more information on the status of an aiq task, such as purge, or a local plan run, monitor it from the command line:

1. Open a command prompt and change to the install directory.
2. Type aiq status –list
3. Note the taskid of the task (mark it and copy it)
4. Type aiq status –taskid “[the taskid noted above]” –poll 30 –loglevel detail

This will poll the task every 30 seconds. Press control-c to end the status task or close the command prompt window.

To see more information on the status of a remote protection plan, monitor it from the remote computer at the command line:
1. On the remote computer, open a command prompt with admin priviledges and change to the install directory.
2. Type \\[EPS server name]\aiqremote$\aiqremote.exe status –list
3. Note the taskid of the task (mark it and copy it)
4. Type \\[EPS server name]\aiqremote$\aiqremote.exe status  –taskid “[the taskid noted above]” –poll 30 –loglevel detail
