NAME

       evms_activate - Activate EVMS volumes

SYNOPSIS

       evms_activate [options]

       [-d debug_level, --debug-level debug_level]
            debug_level=[0-9] |
                        [critical | serious | error | warning |
                         default | details | entry_exit | debug |
                         extra | everything]
       [-l log_file_name, --log-file log_file_name]
       [-n node_name, --node-name node_name]
       [-q] [-v] [-h | -? | --help]

DESCRIPTION

       The  evms_activate  command  discovers  all  EVMS volumes and activates
       kernel devices for all volumes that are not  yet  active.  The  command
       should  be  run  at  boot  time  so the file systems that reside on the
       volumes can be mounted. If EVMS volumes are listed in  the  /etc/fstab,
       evms_activate  should  be  run before /etc/fstab is processed (which is
       distribution specific). If the root file system is on an  EVMS  volume,
       evms_activate should be run from the init-ramdisk.

OPTIONS

       The following options can be used with evms_activate:

       -d, --debug-level debug_level
              Specify  the amount of information that should be written to the
              log file. A numerical value between 0 and 9  can  be  specified,
              where  a  larger  number generates more logging information. The
              following text values are also allowed:

              critical
              serious
              error
              warning
              default
              details
              entry_exit
              debug
              extra
              everything

              "Critical" generates  the  least  information  and  "everything"
              generates  the  most  information.  The  default  debug level is
              "default" or "5."

       -l, --log-file log_file_name
              Specify the location of the  log  file.  The  default  value  is
              /var/log/evms-engine.log.

       -n, --node-name node_name
              Specify  the  node  in  the  cluster  on which volumes should be
              activated. The default value is the local node. If EVMS  is  not
              running in a cluster, this option is ignored.

       -q     Do not display any status information.

       -v     Display  verbose  status  information  about the progress of the
              volume activation.

       -h, -?, --help
              Display a summary of the options available for evms_activate.
