NAME

       vblade, vbladed - export data via ATA over Ethernet

SYNOPSIS

       vblade {shelf} {slot} {netif} {filename}

DESCRIPTION

       The  vblade  command  starts a process that uses raw sockets to perform
       ATA over Ethernet, acting like a virtual EtherDrive (R) blade.

       The vbladed script  can  be  used  to  daemonize  the  vblade  process,
       detaching  it  from  your terminal and sending its output to the system
       logs.

   Arguments
       shelf  This should be the shelf address (major AoE address) of the  AoE
              device to create.

       slot   This  should  be the slot address (minor AoE address) of the AoE
              device to create.

       netif  The name of the  ethernet  network  interface  to  use  for  AoE
              communications.

       filename
              The name of the regular file or block device to export.

EXAMPLE

       In this example, the root user on a host named nai exports a file named
       "3TB" to the LAN on eth0 using AoE shelf address 11 and slot address 1.
       The  process runs in the foreground.  Using vbladed would have resulted
       in the process running as a daemon in the background.

               nai:~# vblade 11 1 eth0 /data/3TB
