This topic introduces the set of QoreStor CLI commands that allow you to manage, configure, and display connection-related settings for containers on a QoreStor server. For more information, see Container Command Usage .

Connection Command Usage

This topic introduces the connection command usage:

  • connection --show [options]
  • connection --add --name [options]
  • connection --update [options]
  • connection --delete [options]
  • connection --enable [options]
  • connection --disable [options]
  • connection --help

NOTE: If you specify a command without supplying the expected value or option, you are prompted to provide the correct value or option.

connection --show [--name <name>] [--type <NFS|CIFS|OST|RDS|NDMP|ISCSI|FC>] [--verbose]


Displays the current connections on a container.

NOTE: In addition to displaying the current status of an existing container connection, this command also verifies if an existing container connection is disabled (by listing its status as offline).


connection --show [--name <name>] [--type <NFS|||||>][--verbose]


--name      Name of container. ABC
--type      Type of sharing (NFS|||||).
--verbose   Show further details.
