       aoe-interfaces - restrict aoe driver to specified network interfaces


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


       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.  Using aoe-interfaces to  limit
       AoE  to  only  trusted  networks  prevents  the case where a rogue AoE target appears on a
       public network, diverting data from the legitimate AoE target.  Such  an  imposter  target
       effectively corrupts the data on the legitimate target.

       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.


       -c     The -c flag will clear the interface access list, permitting any  interface  to  be


       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.
