NAME

       aoe-interfaces - restrict aoe driver to specified network interfaces

SYNOPSIS

       aoe-interfaces [dev1] [dev2 ...]

DESCRIPTION

       The  aoe-interfaces  command  tells  the  aoe driver to ignore ATA over
       Ethernet (AoE) traffic on all but the specified network interfaces.  It
       is analogous to the aoe_iflist module load option.

       If  neither  the  aoe_iflist  module load option nor the aoe-interfaces
       command are used, the aoe driver will use any network interface for AoE
       traffic.

       If  the  aoe  driver  is  a module, then calling aoe-interfaces without
       arguments will display the current interfaces list.  If it hasn’t  been
       set then the output will be blank.

       It’s  good  to  run  the  aoe-discover  command  after  setting the AoE
       interfaces list.

EXAMPLE

       In this example, the root user on a host named nai loads the aoe module
       with only eth0 allowable for AoE traffic.  After remembering that shelf
       7 is on eth3, this sysadmin uses aoe-interfaces to add eth3 to the list
       of  allowable network interfaces and then calls aoe-discover to ask the
       aoe driver to look for new AoE devices.

               nai:~# modprobe aoe aoe_iflist="eth0"
               nai:~# aoe-stat
                  e10.9            eth0              up
               nai:~# aoe-interfaces eth0 eth3
               nai:~# aoe-discover
               nai:~# aoe-stat
                   e7.0            eth3              up
                   e7.1            eth3              up
                   e7.2            eth3              up
                   e7.3            eth3              up
                   e7.4            eth3              up
                   e7.5            eth3              up
                   e7.6            eth3              up
                   e7.7            eth3              up
                   e7.8            eth3              up
                   e7.9            eth3              up
                  e10.9            eth0              up
               nai:~# aoe-interfaces
               eth0 eth3
