    Hi,

    depends largely on the OS:

    - on Windows 7zip

    - on any unix-like (MAC, Linux, ...) tar (on the CLI)

    Regards

    Ulf

    Hi Arix,

     

    If you are woring on a UNIX or LINUX servers there is no need for a tool. You can use below command to extract the files.

     

    >tar -xvf <file_name.tgz>

     

    Or you can use winzip to extarct the files.

    Thanks...

     

    Another qs:

    Why I can't copy the tgz files from junos device to my pc over winSCP. Any txt files are okay but .tgz no.... not allowed me to copy, permission deny...what should I do?

    Can you please do a "file list detail </path/filename>" on the JUNOS device? Maybe the different files have different permissions?

    > file list detail /var/tmp/LastVarLog.tgz
    -rw------- 1 xxxxxxxx wheel 104550044 Mar 11 55:13 /var/tmp/LastVarLog.tgz

     

    when generating tgz compress archive file, how to make sure all can open/read /write?

     

    Another qs:

    When examining the RSI, what key thing(s) can be looked at and how? Using the ctrl+F or?

    Arix, 

     

    Can you share the error screenshot.

    Also, are you logged in as root on the Junos ? What class does the user you have belong to ? 

     

    Regards,

    Hey Arix, 

     

    I would recommend you use the linux command:    tar  -zxvf  <filename>.tgz
    Also, refer this for some faster speed:
