The following cases are addressed by the sample scripts:

Case 1: Run one or more SFW commands on multiple systems

This sample script runs SFW commands on local and remote systems simultaneously. Use this script to query information such as SFW product version, disks, disk groups, and volumes configured, and active SFW tasks running on the systems.

Case 2: Run one or more SFW commands on specific systems

This sample script runs specific SFW commands on specific local and remote systems simultaneously. Use this script to perform basic SFW operations such as creating disk groups and volumes, and adding a mirror for an existing volume.

Case 3: Run a command with arguments on specific systems

This sample script runs SFW commands with arguments on specific local and remote systems simultaneously. Use this script to perform SFW operations that require multiple arguments, such as Volume Shadow Service (VSS) and volume level snapshotting operations that include preparing a snapshot, taking a snapshot, and running snapback.
