SDAOE(3) SDAOE(3) NAME sdaoe - ATA-over-Ethernet (AoE) storage device interface SYNOPSIS bind -a #S /dev echo config switch on spec l type aoe//dev/aoe/shelf.slot >/dev/sdctl echo config switch off spec l >/dev/sdctl /dev/sdl0/ctl /dev/sdl0/raw /dev/sdl0/data ... addaoe letter unit DESCRIPTION Sdaoe has a few quirks because network-attached storage can't be enumerated as directly-attached storage can. The default first controller letter for AoE devices is `e'. Each sdaoe device must be configured explicitly. Addaoe packages up the `switch on' invocation as an rc script. To boot from an AoE root, the sd device must be configured on boot by either PXE booting or booting from directly- attached storage and adding two configuration lines to plan9.ini(8) for aoeif, listing the names of the Ethernet interface(s) to use, and aoedev=letter!#æ/aoe/lun. EXAMPLES To configure target (LUN) 42.0 on #S/sde0, echo config switch on spec e type aoe//dev/aoe/42.0 >/dev/sdctl To turn this device off, echo config switch off spec e >/dev/sdctl To boot using target 42.0 as #S/sde0 and as root, over Eth- ernet interfaces 0 and 1, aoeif=ether0 ether1 aoedev=e!42.0 SOURCE /sys/src/9/port/sdaoe.c SEE ALSO aoe(3), sd(3), snoopy(8) BUGS SDAOE(3) SDAOE(3) It is not currently possible to boot from an AoE target without an external bootstrap like PXE.
