A.180 takeOwnership

Take ownership of an Oracle VM Server or storage repository.

Syntax

takeOwnership { Repository instance [ serverpool=value ] | Server instance password=value }

Where instance is:

{ id=value | name=value }

Description

This command takes ownership of an Oracle VM Server or storage repository. After taking ownership of a repository, you should refresh it using the refresh command. If a server is only partially discovered, in the sense that it is already under the ownership of another Oracle VM Manager instance, and ownership is subsequently released, you may need to rediscover the server before you are able to take ownership of it in the current Oracle VM Manager instance.

Options

The following table shows the available options for this command.
