I wanted to rename a whole bunch of models to transform their names into all lowercase with just the hostname rather than the FQDN.
I used this script to do it with bash and vnmsh. The script will loop through all models found by the query with a model type handle, and then renames then with a vnmsh update command.


#!/bin/bash
export CLIMNAMEWIDTH=70
OldIFS=$IFS
IFS=$'\n'
WORKPATH="/opt/CA/Spectrum/vnmsh"

$WORKPATH/connect

## Pingable
MDLLIST=`$WORKPATH/show models mth=0x10290`
MDLLIST=`echo "$MDLLIST" | grep -vi mname`

for x in $MDLLIST; do
MDLHANDLE=`echo $x | awk -F '[ |.]+' ' { print $1 } '`
MDLNAME=`echo $x | awk -F '[ |.]+' ' { print tolower($2) }'`
echo $MDLHANDLE
echo $MDLNAME

$WORKPATH/update mh=$MDLHANDLE attr=0x1006e,val=$MDLNAME
done
$WORKPATH/disconnect
IFS=$OldIFS
