NAME


sbdadm - SCSI Block Disk command line interface

SYNOPSIS


sbdadm create-lu [-s, --size size] filename


sbdadm delete-lu lu_name


sbdadm import-lu lu_name


sbdadm list-lu lu_name


sbdadm modify-lu [-s, --size size] lu_name | filename


DESCRIPTION


The sbdadm command creates and manages SCSI-block-device-based logical
units that are registered with the SCSI Target Mode Framework (STMF).

SUBCOMMANDS


The sbdadm command supports the subcommands listed below. Note that if
you enter a question mark as an argument to the command (sbdadm ?),
sbdadm responds with a help display.

create-lu [-s, --size size] filename

Create a logical unit that can be registered with the STMF. For the
-s option, size is an integer followed by one of the following
letters, to indicate a unit of size:

k
kilobyte


m
megabyte


g
gigabyte


t
terabyte


p
petabyte


e
exabyte

If you do not specify size, the size defaults to the size of
filename.

The size specified can exceed the size of the file or device.


delete-lu lu_name

Deletes an existing logical unit that was created using sbdadm
create-lu. This effectively unloads the logical unit from the STMF
framework. Any existing data on the logical unit remains intact.


import-lu lu_name

Imports and loads a logical unit into the STMF that was previously
created using sbdadm create-lu and was since deleted from the STMF
using sbdadm delete-lu. On success, the logical unit is again made
available to the STMF. filename is the filename used in the sbdadm
create-lu command for this logical unit.


list-lu

List all logical units that were created using the sbdadm create-lu
command.


modify-lu [-s, --size size] lu_name | filename

Modifies attributes of an logical unit created using the sbdadm
create-lu command. For the -s option, size is an integer value
followed by a unit specifier. The unit specifiers are as described
above under create-lu. When this option is specified, the existing
size of the logical unit is changed to the new size.

The size specified can exceed the size of the file or device
represented by lu_name.


OPERANDS


sbdadm use the following operands:

filename

Name of an existing file or a fully qualified path to a raw block
device.


lu_name

The 32-byte hexadecimal representation of the logical unit.


EXAMPLES


Example 1: Creating a Logical Unit




The following series of commands creates a 10-gigabyte logical unit.


# touch /export/lun/0
# sbdadm create-lu -s 10g /export/lun/0
# sbdadm create-lu /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0


Example 2: Listing Logical Units




The following command lists all logical units.


# sbdadm list-lu
Found 2 LU(s)
