raidconfig Command Overview

The raidconfig commands adhere to the following command syntax:

raidconfig subcommand device-type -option(s)

For Solaris, after hot-plugging any device, run the devfsadm -C command to reenumerate all of the system device nodes before running the raidconfig command.

When a command fails, it returns one of several failure codes listed in raidconfig Error Codes.

The following options apply to all CLI tools commands including raidconfig:

Short Option
Long Option
Help—Displays help information.
Version—Displays the tool version.
Quiet—Suppress informational message output and only returns error codes.
Yes—Confirms operation. Does not prompt user for confirmation on the operation when running.

If you use the --help or --version options, the raidconfig command does not require subcommands, otherwise one or more subcommands are mandatory to the raidconfig command.

The following are subcommands for raidconfig:

Lists information on controllers, RAID Volumes and disks, including disks not in a RAID volume. Specific devices can be selected for display.
Create a RAID volume.
Delete a RAID volume.
Modify a RAID volume or a disk.
Add a spare disk.
Remove a spare disk.
Generate an XML file from a RAID configuration.
Read in a RAID configuration and create RAID volumes and spares.

The subcommands are discussed below. Whenever devices (controllers, RAID volumes, and disks) are used with commands, they must be uniquely identified. For information on how to do so, see the device-naming scheme at CLI Tools Device-Naming Convention.

Device naming is shared with other CLI tools based on the storage library.
