Sun StorageTek 5800 System SDK Reference Manual


Queries for metadata records. QUERY is of the form:

<name1>=’<value1>’ AND <name2>=’<value2>’ OR ...

See the examples below for formatting of various types of values. The OID and any specified fields of metadata records that match the query are printed to stdout.

<name> should be specified in the format <namespace>.<attribute>.

Note that names that are keywords need to be enclosed in escaped double quotes (for example, with the bash shell, use "\"<name>\"=’<value>’"). Refer to the list of keywords in Chapter 4, Sun StorageTek 5800 System Query Language, in Sun StorageTek 5800 SystemClient API Reference Manual.
