VBLADE(8) VBLADE(8) NAME vblade - virtual AoE target SYNOPSIS disk/vblade [ -ir ] [ -s size ] [ -a shelf.slot ] [ -c config ] file [ -e ether ] DESCRIPTION For each file specified, vblade serves it as an AoE (ATA- over-Ethernet) target via the specified interfaces. The default interface is /net/ether0. Since AoE uses raw Ether- net frames, the target is only visible on the local ethernet segment. All target-related options are reset for each file. Options -i Initialize the configuration header in file. All previous configuration information is lost. With- out this option, configuration is read from file and command like options override previous set- tings. -r Raw. Do not use a configuration header. This is useful when exporting a device or file not gener- ally exported by vblade. -s n The exported target will have size n, rather than the available space in the target. A size may end in `p', `t', `g', `m', or `k' to specify a custom- ary binary multiplier. -a m.n Specify the shelf and slot (or major and minor) address of the target. Valid shelf numbers are between 0 and 65534. Valid slots are 0-255. -c s Set the AoE config string to s. -e ether Listen to the network port ether. Multiple ports may be specified.
