5.7.1 Saving CPU Activation Keys
To save the CPU Activation keys on your system, use the dumpcodactivation command on the XSCF shell.
You need to have a user account that has the platadm, platop, or fieldeng privilege to execute this command.
Specify the URL of the storage location for the CPU Activation key. To specify USB media, connect it to a USB port on the XSCF unit panel (rear panel) of the master XSCF.
The following command syntax shows how to specify USB media.
XSCF> dumpcodactivation file:///media/usb_msd/filename
This command saves all the CPU Activation keys stored on the XSCF.
The CPU Activation keys are stored in plaintext by default.
With the -e option specified, the command encrypts and saves the CPU Activation keys.
