storage_group --delete --name <name> 

Description

Deletes the specified storage group from the QoreStor.

NOTE: Before a storage group can be deleted, all of the containers inside the storage group must first be deleted.

Syntax

storage_group --delete --name <name>

Where

--name   Name of storage_group.

Result

Storage Group "StorageGroup_1" has been deleted.

storage_group --setpassphrase --name <name> 

Description

Sets the passphrase for the specified storage group to be used to encrypt content encryption keys. (The passphrase string can take up to 255 characters. And, alphanumeric and special characters can be entered as part of the passphrase string.) This command will prompt you to enter and confirm a passphrase. This command also requires a filesystem server restart.

NOTE: It is mandatory to define a passphrase to enable encryption for a storage group. If the passphrase is compromised or lost, the administrator should change it immediately so that the content encryption keys do not become vulnerable.

Syntax

storage_group --setpassphrase --name <name>

Where

--name   Storage group name

Result

Storage Group "StorageGroup_1" updated successfully.
Passphrase updated successfully.
