xsanctl(8)                BSD System Manager's Manual               xsanctl(8)


NAME

     xsanctl -- Xsan file system control utility


SYNOPSYS

     xsanctl command [arg [...]]


DESCRIPTION

     xsanctl provides a basic control facility for the Xsan file system.  It
     operates by sending commands to the Xsan file system management daemon
     xsand.  xsanctl must be run by the superuser.


COMMANDS

     xsanctl provides the following commands:

     help                    Display a list of the available xsanctl commands.

     ping                    Sends a `ping' message to xsand.  This can be
                             used to verify that xsand is responding to man-
                             agement requests.

     mount volumeName        Mounts the volume volumeName.  After the volume
                             is successfully mounted, the Xsan volume auto-
                             mount state is updated to reflect that this vol-
                             ume should be automatically mounted at startup
                             time.  This is the preferred method of mounting
                             Xsan volumes from the command line.

     unmount volumeName      Unmounts the volume volumeName.  After the volume
                             is successfully unmounted, the Xsan volume auto-
                             mount state is updated to reflect that this vol-
                             ume should not be automatically mounted at
                             startup time.  This is the preferred method of
                             unmounting Xsan volumes from the command line.

     list                    Lists the volumes available on the SAN and the
                             path at which each volume is mounted on the local
                             computer as reported by Disk Arbitration.

     sanConfigChanged        Sends a notification to the Xsan file system that
                             the SAN configuration has changed and should be
                             reloaded.

     roleChanged             Sends a notification to the Xsan file system that
                             the role of this computer in the SAN has changed
                             or that the computer has been removed from the
                             SAN.

     disksChanged            Sends a notification to the Xsan file system that
                             disks have changed and should be rescanned.

     wipeConfig              Causes the Xsan file system configuration to be
                             reset to an unconfigured state.
