NAME


lsmcli - libStorageMgmt command line interface

SYNOPSIS


lsmcli command [GLOBAL OPTIONS]...[COMMAND OPTIONS]...

DESCRIPTION


lsmcli is the command line tool for the libStorageMgmt library. This tool allows users to
do one off storage related management operations or to script management of their storage.

PREREQUISITES


* libStorageMgmt daemon.
The daemon 'lsmd' is required by lsmcli.

* URI(Uniform Resource Identifier)
URI is used to identify which plugin to use and how the plugin should communicate
with the storage array. The valid URI format is:
plugin://<username>@host:<port>?<query_string_parameters>
plugin+ssl://<username>@host:<port>?<query_string_parameters>
Examples, please refer to "LibStorageMgmt User Guide" for more details:
* Simulator:
sim://
simc://
* NetApp ONTAP:
ontap://username@host
ontap+ssl://username@host
* SMI-S supported arrays (eg. EMC CX/VNX, HDS AMS, IBM SVC/DS, LSI MegaRAID
and others):
smis://username@host:<port>?namespace=<namespace>
smis+ssl://username@host:<port>?namespace=<namespace>
You can pass URI to lsmcli via one of these methods:
* Using '-u, --uri' argument.
* Using 'LSMCLI_URI' environment variable.
* Add this line into $HOME/.lsmcli:
uri=<URI>

* Password
For storage array password authentication you can pass it to lsmcli via one of the
following methods:
* '-P, --prompt' argument to prompt for password.
* 'LSMCLI_PASSWORD' environment variable.

GLOBAL OPTIONS


--version Show program's version number and exit

-h, --help Show this help message and exit. Will show help message of specific command
if specified.

-u <URI>, --uri <URI>
Uniform Resource Identifier (env LSMCLI_URI)

-P, --prompt Prompt for password (env LSMCLI_PASSWORD)

-H, --human Print sizes in human readable format (e.g., KiB, MiB, GiB, TiB, PiB, EiB)

-t <SEP>, --terse <SEP>
Print output in terse form with "SEP" as a record separator without header
unless '--header' defined.

--header Include the header with terse

-e, --enum Display enumerated types as numbers instead of text

-f, --force Bypass confirmation prompt for data loss operations

-w <WAIT>, --wait=<WAIT>
Command timeout value in ms (default = 30s)

-b Run the command asynchronously instead of waiting for completion. The
lsmcli command will exit with exit code(7) and job id will be written to
STDOUT when a command is still executing on the storage array. Use 'job-
status --id <job id>' to inquire on the progress of the command. Some
arrays or plugins might not support asynchronous operations, in those
circumstances, -b will be ineffective. Command will wait until finished.

-s, --script Displaying data in script friendly way.
Without this option, data is displayed in this manner (default):

ID | Name | Element Type ...
------------------------------------------ ...
aggr0 | aggr0 | FS,SYSTEM_RESERVED,POOL ...
iscsi | iscsi | FS,POOL ...

With this option, data is displayed in this manner.

-----------------------------------------------
ID | aggr0
Name | aggr0
Element Type | FS,SYSTEM_RESERVED,POOL
...
-----------------------------------------------
ID | iscsi
Name | iscsi
Element Type | FS,POOL
...

Please note:
To reduce the width of output, NOT all properties will be displayed in
default column display.
