I was trying to head start with Isilon CLI to automate some of the manual stuffs that we do on regular basis. Though I found the CLI guide from support site; I was not happy with explanations or syntax etc…

Many thanks to the respective authors of the above blogs. I hope it would be useful for others as well. 🙂
