NAME

       cdist-type__filesystem - Create Filesystems.

DESCRIPTION

       This cdist type allows you to create filesystems on devices.

       If the device is mounted on target, it refuses to do anything.

       If  the  device has a filesystem other then the specified and/or the label is not correct,
       it only makes a new filesystem if you have specified --force option.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

       fstype Filesystem type, for example 'ext3', 'btrfs' or 'xfs'.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       device Blockdevice for filesystem, Defaults to object_id.  On linux, it can be  any  lsblk
              accepted device notation.

              For example:
                /dev/sdx
                or /dev/disk/by-xxxx/xxx
                or /dev/mapper/xxxx

       label  Label which should be applied on the filesystem.

       mkfsoptions
              Additional options which are inserted to the mkfs.xxx call.

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

       force  Normally,  this type does nothing if a filesystem is found on the target device. If
              you specify force, it's formatted if the filesystem  type  or  label  differs  from
              parameters.  Warning: This option can easily lead into data loss!

MESSAGES

       filesystem <fstype> on <device>
              <discoverd device> created Filesystem was created on <discoverd device>

EXAMPLES

          # Ensures that device /dev/sdb is formatted with xfs
          __filesystem /dev/sdb --fstype xfs --label Testdisk1
          # The same thing with btrfs and disk spezified by pci path to disk 1:0 on vmware
          __filesystem dev_sdb --fstype btrfs --device /dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:0b:00.0-scsi-0:0:0:0 --label Testdisk2
          # Make sure that a multipath san device has a filesystem ...
          __filesystem dev_sdb --fstype xfs --device /dev/mapper/360060e80432f560050202f22000023ff --label Testdisk3
