A.20 create FileServer

Discovers a file server.


create FileServer plugin=name accessHost=value [ adminHost=value adminUserName=value adminPassword=value ] [ uniformedExports= { yes | no } ] [ name=value ] [ description=value ]


This command discovers a file server and adds it to Oracle VM Manager. If you are adding a non-generic file server, for example a Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, also enter the additional plug-in options to enable Oracle VM Manager to access the file server's configuration management functions using the adminHost option.

After discovering a file server, you should:


The following table shows the available options for this command.




The storage plug-in to use for the file server to be discovered. The plugin name must match an existing plugin name exactly. To obtain a list of existing plugin names, do:

OVM> list FileServerPlugin

If a vendor specific plug-in is configured it is made available as an option here. To see the list of options, use the ? option, for example:

OVM> create FileServer plugin=?


The host name or IP address for the file server to be discovered.


The host name or IP address where administrative access to the file server is allowed.


A user name with administrative access to the file server, used with adminHost.


The administrator password for the adminUserName user.

uniformedExports= { yes | no }

Whether the file server has uniformed file system exports. The default is yes.


A name to identify the file server.


Optional description for the file server.


Any create command only creates a single instance of an object, and therefore only accepts a single object instance as an attribute. Providing more than one object of the same attribute type as a parameter always results in the last attribute value taking precedence.
