HowTo - Get the support information for an Arista switch for RCA analysis?

Goal

How to get the support logs from Arista switch ?

Solution

The best command to use to get the support information (similar to supportsave from brocade) is the "show tech-support" command.  The "enable" command must be run before hand in order to escalate privileges.

Example

[root@mdw gpconfigs]# ssh admin@i-sw-1
Last login: Thu Jan 30 20:29:20 2014 from 172.28.4.250
waiting for mounts to complete ...ok

i-sw-1>enable

i-sw-1# show tech-support | redirect scp:root@172.28.4.250/tmp/arista-show-tech.log
root@172.28.4.250's password:
tmpzbDW9V 100% 417KB 416.9KB/s 00:00
i-sw-1#exit
Connection to i-sw-1 closed.
[root@mdw gpconfigs]# ls -ltra /tmp/arista-show-tech.log
-rw------- 1 root root 426889 Jan 30 11:50 /tmp/arista-show-tech.log
