       aoe-discover - tell aoe driver to discover AoE devices




       The  aoe-discover  command  tells  the  aoe driver to discover ATA over
       Ethernet (AoE) devices on the network.  All network interfaces will  be
       probed with a AoE config query broadcast.

       If  the  aoe-interfaces  command  has  limited  the  allowable  network
       interfaces, only  devices  discovered  via  allowable  interfaces  will
       become  available.   The  default  is to make available all AoE devices
       found on all accessible ethernet networks.

       It’s good to run the aoe-discover command after running aoe-interfaces.


       In this example, the root user on a host named nai loads the aoe module
       with only eth0 allowable for AoE traffic.  After remembering that shelf
       7 is on eth3, this sysadmin uses aoe-interfaces to add eth3 to the list
       of allowable network interfaces and then calls aoe-discover to ask  the
       aoe driver to look for new AoE devices.

              nai:~# modprobe aoe aoe_iflist="eth0"
              nai:~# aoe-stat
                 e10.9            eth0              up
              nai:~# aoe-interfaces eth0 eth3
              nai:~# aoe-discover
              nai:~# aoe-stat
                  e7.0            eth3              up
                  e7.1            eth3              up
                  e7.2            eth3              up
                  e7.3            eth3              up
                  e7.4            eth3              up
                  e7.5            eth3              up
                  e7.6            eth3              up
                  e7.7            eth3              up
                  e7.8            eth3              up
                  e7.9            eth3              up
                 e10.9            eth0              up
