storage_group --show [--name <name>] [--verbose]

Description

Displays the current list of storage groups on the QoreStor. If you specify the –name option, you can view details of a specific storage group. The –verbose option displays more details.

Syntax

storage_group --show [--name <name>] [--verbose]

Where

--name      Display details for a specific Storage group.
--verbose   Display more details

storage_group --add --name <name> [--compression_mode <fast|best>]

Description

Adds a new storage group to the QoreStor with the name specified by the --name command option.

NOTE: When adding a name, valid values for the name are (a-z, A-Z, 0–9, ‘_’, and ‘_’)

NOTE: Do not change the chunk_type parameter from the default setting unless directed to do so by Quest Support.

You can also set the compression mode for the storage group as fast or best, described as follows:

  • Fast — Results in shorter backup time, but with less space savings.
  • Best — Provides the highest space savings, but with a longer backup time.

Syntax

storage_group --add --name <name> [--compression_mode <fast|best>][--map_exclusive <enclosure filesystem dir>]

Where

		
--name			Name of the storage group. Valid values are [a-z,A-Z,0-9,'-' and '_'] and maximum of 32 characters. 
--compression_mode     Valid values are Fast and Best. 
--map_exclusive        Absolute directory path for exclusively mapped enclosure.

Result

Storage Group "StorageGroup_1" created successfully. 

storage_group --update --name <name> [--compression_mode <fast|best>]

Description

Allows you to modify the settings for the specified storage group.

Syntax

storage_group --update --name <name> [--compression_mode <fast|best>] 

Where

--name                    Name of the storage group. Valid values are [a-z,A-Z,0-9,'-' and '_'] and maximum of 32 characters.
--compression_mode        Valid values are Fast and Best

Result

Storage Group "StorageGroup_1" updated successfully. 

storage_group --encryption --name <name> [--set <ON | OFF>] [--mode <static|internal> <--interval <7 days to 70 years>]

Description

Allows you to set the encryption level for a specified storage group on the QoreStor. You turn encryption on or off by using the --set ON or --set OFF command options. The --mode option sets the mode of key lifecycle management as one of the following:

  • static—A global, fixed key is used to encrypt all data.
  • internal—Content encryption keys are generated and rotated on a specified period of days.

If you select Internal as the mode of key management, you need to set the --interval option, which specifies the number of days for key rotation when a new key is to be generated.

NOTE: In Internal mode there is a maximum limit of 1023 keys. The key rotation period is set to 30 days by default when the passphrase is set and/or encryption is turned on. You can later change the key rotation period from 7 days to 70 years for internal mode.

NOTE: After encryption is enabled, all of the data that is backed up is encrypted and is kept encrypted until it is expired and cleaned by the system cleaner. Note that encryption is an irreversible process.

NOTE: Due to export regulations, the encryption at rest feature is not available in certain markets, and, therefore, may not be available in your locale.

Syntax

storage_group --encryption --name <name> [--set <ON | OFF>] [--mode < static | internal >] [--interval <7 days to 70 years>]

Where

--name       Name of the storage group. Valid values are [a-z,A-Z,0-9,'-' and '_'] and maximum of 32 characters.
--set        Valid values are On and Off.
--mode       Valid values are static and internal.
--interval   Valid values are between 7 days to 70 years (in days)

Result

Storage Group "StorageGroup_1" updated successfully.
