12.x/13.1 iMPACT - What is the batch command for identifying a programming cable ESN?

Description

What is the batch command to identify a programming cable ESN in iMPACT Help?

Solution

The following command was added to iMPACT Help in iMPACT 13.1.

============================================================
listusbcables [-host <hostname>]

If -host is not specified, enumerate the cables connected to the local machine. Otherwise, enumerate the USB cables connected to the remote host; the server application (cse_server) must be running in the remote host, in this case.
============================================================

Following are the sample console messages when the command is run:

>listusbcables
