Adds a target device to the job. This is a USB device, which is CIFS shared from a Windows or Linux system.
NOTE: During seeding import, when a device is added to be used as target device, it can be used only for one job. To use it for another job, you need to delete all the seeding contents from the device. You can create separate folders on this device and can use each folder for a job.
seed --add_device --server <server name> --volume <volume> --username <user name> [--domain <domain name>]
--server CIFS Server to be used for importing / exporting data(IP address or FQDN). --volume Volume in the CIFS share. --username Username of cifs server. --domain CIFS Server's domain.

Starts the cleaner to remove data not referenced on the target.
NOTE: You should run the seeding cleaner only when the system is idle and no ingests or replications tasks are in progress. When the seeding cleaner is run during replication, for example, there is a chance of missing data during the seeding process. However, this data will eventually be sent during resync.
