tgt-admin — Linux SCSI Target Configuration Tool

Synopsis

tgt-admin [-e --execute] [--delete <value>] [--offline <value>] [--ready <value>] [-s --show] [-C --control-port <NNNN>] [-c --conf <file>] [--ignore-errors] [-f --force] [-p --pretend] [--dump] [-v --verbose] [-h --help]

Description

tgt-admin is a utility which allows a persistent configuration of targets and luns. It uses tgtadm commands to create, delete and show targets.

Options

-e, --execute
Read /etc/tgt/targets.conf and execute tgtadm commands. If the target already exists, it won't be processed. See --update.
-d, --delete <value>

Delete all or selected targets. The target will be deleted only if it's not used (no initiator is connected to it).

If you want to delete targets which are in use, you have to add the "--force" flag.

Example usage:
    --delete ALL            - delete all targets
    --delete tid=4          - delete target 4
                              (target with tid 4)
    --delete iqn.2008-08.com.example:some.target
                            - delete this target
--offline

Put all or selected targets in offline state.

Example usage:
    --offline ALL           - offline all targets
    --offline tid=4         - offline target 4
                              (target with tid 4)
    --offline iqn.2008-08.com.example:some.target
                            - offline this target
--ready

Put all or selected targets in ready state.

Example usage:
    --ready ALL             - ready all targets
    --ready tid=4           - ready target 4
                              (target with tid 4)
    --ready iqn.2008-08.com.example:some.target
                            - ready this target
--update <value>

Update all or selected targets. The target will be updated only if it's not used (no initiator is connected to it).

If you want to update targets which are in use, you have to add "--force" flag.

Example usage:
    --update ALL             - ready all targets
    --update tid=4           - ready target 4
                               (target with tid 4)
    --update iqn.2008-08.com.example:some.target
                             - update this target
-s, --show
Show all the targets.
-C, --control-port <NNNN>
It is possible to run multiple concurrent instances of tgtd on a host. This argument is used to control which instance the tgt-admin command will operate on.
-c, --conf <configuration file>
Specify an alternative configuration file instead of /etc/tgt/targets.conf, which is the default.
--ignore-errors
Continue even if tgtadm exits with non-zero code.
-f, --force
Force some operations even if the target is in use.
-p, --pretend
Only print tgtadm options which would be used; don't execute any actions. Assumes -v.
--dump
Dump current tgtd configuration. Note: does not include detailed parameters, like write caching.
-v, --verbose
Increase verbosity (show tgtadm commands used).
-h, --help
Display a list of available options and exit.
