A.142 refresh

Refreshes configuration information about an object in Oracle VM Manager.

Syntax

refresh { AccessGroup | Assembly | FileServer | FileSystem | PhysicalDisk | Repository | Server | StorageArray | VirtualAppliance } instance

Where instance is:

{ id=value | name=value }

Description

This command reads the configuration information about the object and updates the Oracle VM Manager database repository.

When refreshing the file systems or a file server with non-uniform exports, all of the refresh servers for the file server must be available. If a refresh server is out of commission and you need to perform a refresh, you can remove that refresh server from the file server and add an alternate that has access to the same set of exports on the file server. For more information on uniform and non-uniform exports, please refer to What are Uniform and Non-uniform Exports? in the Oracle VM Concepts Guide.

Options

The following table shows the available options for this command.

Option

Description

{ AccessGroup | Assembly | FileServer | FileSystem | PhysicalDisk | Repository | Server | StorageArray | VirtualAppliance }

The object to be refreshed.

Important

The Assembly option has been deprecated. You should instead use VirtualAppliance.

{ id=value | name=value }

The instance of the object using either the id or name option, for example name=MyServer. Note that if the object name contains forward slashes, these must be escaped using an additional forward slash. This is illustrated in the examples for this command.
