xsanctl

The xsanctl command allows you to manage basic events on an Xsan. The following options are available to xsanctl:

  • disksChanged – Causes the FSS to scan the available LUNs
  • mount – Mounts a volume
  • ping – Verifies FSS (File System Server) responsiveness
  • sanConfigChanged – Causes the FSS to reload the volume configuration file
  • unmount – Unmounts a volume

These options are used following the xsanctl command and are then followed with any options they themselves may have. For example, if you want to mount a volume you would run the xsanctl command followed by the mount option/verb and then the name of a volume, like so (assuming volume name of KryptedVideos):

xsanctl mount KryptedVideos

Now let’s say that you then wanted to unmount that volume; simply transpose mount with unmount as follows:

xsanctl unmount KryptedVideos

Once mounted you should be able to cd into /Volumes/KryptedVideos and verify that the filesystem has been mounted.
