NOTE: The displayed output when using the rda --show --clients command indicates a fourth type of mode value. Depending upon the client, this value equals Auto, Dedupe, Passthrough, or Mixed. Mixed indicates that you changed the mode while the client is still connected.

NOTE: The mode for clients that are connected to the RDA media server before configuration changes might be different than what is displayed when using the rda --show --clients command. The configuration changes are updated to reflect any future connections.

To verify the current state of an RDA client, you can check the two sources:

  • QoreStor CLI, using the rda --show --clients command
  • QoreStor GUI, displaying the Clients page

These sources display information about the connected and configured clients. When a system is connected multiple times, these sources show the number of connections to that client and the mode. You can also change the mode from dedupe to the other supported modes. When this is done the displayed mode changes, but any active connections remains. There are essentially two possible modes: Dedupe and Passthrough. To verify the current mode of an RDA client, you can check the two sources of client statistics:

  • QoreStor CLI, using the stats --container --name command
  • QoreStor GUI, displaying the Container Statistics page

In the Container Statistics page, click the Client Statistics tab (under Connection Type: RDS) to display the Client Statistics table. If the Network Savings level in this table displays some savings and the displayed Bytes Ingested value is different from the displayed Bytes Transferred, it indicates that the RDA clients are working in the Dedupe mode. If not, it indicates that the RDA containers are working in the Passthrough mode.

rda --update --opdup_encryption <none | aes128 | aes256>

Description

Sets the type of encryption that will be used by RDA initiated opdup replication.

Syntax

rda --update --opdup_encryption <none || aes256>

Where

--opdup_encryption   Type of encryption to use on the wire.

Result

RDS OPDUP encryption updated to aes128

rda --delete_client --name <RDA Client Hostname>

Description

The command deletes the Rapid Data Access (RDA) client and any edits that were made to its default values. The next time a connection is established between the client and the QoreStor, the default RDA connection settings will be used. Deleting an RDA client using this CLI command does not affect data already written to the QoreStor.

Syntax

rda --delete_client --name <RDA Client Hostname>

Where

--name   Host name

For example, to delete the client TEST-W2K8–02, run the command:

rda --delete_client --name TEST-W2K8-02

Result

Rapid Data Access (RDA) client TEST-W2K8-02 deleted successfully.
