Diagnostic bundle location on server.

Following this page:


The diagnostic bundle is offered as a download right after it's collected.  However, I want to use the python script to send it up.  For that I need to know where the generated bundle file is on the server.


I tried to look in /tmp of the Cloudera Manager Service but there was nothing there.


Where is the bundle located on a Cloudera server?

We are facing issue in downloading from that button due to some network issue.

Could you please suggest where this bundle get stored on server itself?

Check /tmp for a file that contains the string scm-command-result.


For example, on my Cloudera Manager host, I see:
