Cisco Tcl Script Help Pt1

Posted on 2014-01-31

Last Modified: 2014-02-02
Hello Experts,

I've compiled the attached script. However, when I attempt to register the script I get the following error:

Router(config)#even ma p ISPTest
Embedded Event Manager configuration: ISPTest does not have valid policy extension
Router(config)#even ma p ISPTest.tcl
Compile check and registration failed:syntax error in expression "$arr_einfo(condition) == Occurred"
    ("if" test expression)
    while compiling
"if {$arr_einfo(condition) == Occurred} {

    if [catch {cli_open} result] {
        error $result $errorInfo
    } else {
        array set cli1 $res..."
Tcl policy execute failed: syntax error in expression "$arr_einfo(condition) == Occurred"couldn't compile policy file to bytecode: Unknown error 0

Embedded Event Manager configuration: failed to retrieve intermediate registration result for policy ISPTest.tcl: Unknown error 0

I wonder if someone could take a look at the script and let me know where I might be going wrong?

I'm not familiar with TCL script but just a thought since no one is replying yet.

Have you look at the use of "{ }" see if you have them in the right place?

Really?  I started as a programmer (cobol and VB) and it was always a small stuff that failed compiling....  Glad it helped!
