Understanding the QoreStor CLI

The QoreStor command line interface (CLI) provides the most efficient method for managing the status, data capacity, storage savings, and throughput of data containers. While some QoreStor functions can be managed through the QoreStor GUI, the CLI provides full access to all QoreStor features and functions.

Accessing the QoreStor CLI commands

This guide assumes that your QoreStor system has been deployed in the proper network location and is accessible to your workstation.

Accessing the CLI commands

Accessing the CLI commands

To access the command line interface for QoreStor:

  1. Using the terminal emulation application of your choice, connect to your QoreStor server.
  2. At the system prompt, enter the username for an account with sufficient privileges. By default this is the qsadmin account:
    • Type qsadmin
    • Press <Enter>
  3. At the password prompt, enter the password for the qsadmin account (the default is St0r@ge!):
    • Type St0r@ge!
    • Press <Enter>
  4. Enter the desired command at the prompt. To view the available QoreStor CLI commands, type help.

Alternatively, you may access the command line interface through the QoreStore web terminal in the QoreStor GUI.

To access the Web Terminal

  1. On the QoreStor UI, select System to expand the menu. Click Terminal
  2. In the Username field, enter the desired user name. You will be prompted for the password.

    NOTE:QoreStor includes a custom shell implementation that simplifies and secures command line access. During installation, QoreStor creates the qsadmin user account with the permissions and configurations necessary to run QoreStor commands. Unless absolutely necessary, Quest recommends using the qsadmin account for CLI access. The default credentials are:

    user: qsadmin

    password: St0r@ge!

  3. Click Connect to authenticate and access the terminal.
  4. To view the list of available QoreStor commands, enter help at the prompt.

    NOTE: Refer to the QoreStorCommand Line Reference Guide for more detailed information on QoreStor CLI commands.

  5. To log out of the terminal, enter exit at the prompt.

NOTE: When using Internet Explorer 11 to access the QoreStor UI, the Terminal page is displayed directly after logging in to QoreStor. The QoreStor navigation menu is not displayed and use of other UI functions is not supported.
