       ietadm - iSCSI Enterprise Target Administration Utility.


       ietadm --op [operation] --tid=[id] [--sid [id]] [--params


       ietadm is used to monitor and modify in real-time the iSCSI Enterprise
       Target targets and volumes.


       You'll have to get target ids from /proc/net/iet/volumes and sessions
       ids from /proc/net/iet/session.  Some usage examples can be :

       ietadm --op show --tid=1

       display status of target 1 (see /proc/net/iet/volumes to get the
       matching target name)

       ietadm --op new --tid=2

       create dynamically a new target, numbered 2. CAUTION : the target will
       disappear if you restart ietd, you'll have to edit /etc/ietd.conf to
       make it permanent!


       ietadm misses error messages. Look carefully at the STDERR output : in
       case of error it will send a 3 number error code, ending with -1, for
       instance :

       ietd_request 203 3 -1


       --op new --tid=[id] --params Name=[name]

       add a new target with [id]. If [id] is zero, the lowest free [id] is
       allocated automatically to the new target.

       --op delete --tid=[id]

       delete specific target with [id]. The target must have no active

       --op show --tid=[id]

       show target parameters of target with [id].

       --op show --tid=[id] --sid=[sid]

       show iSCSI parameters in effect for session [sid]. If [sid] is "0"
       (zero), the configured parameters will be displayed.

       --op new --tid=[id] --lun=[lun] --params Path=[path]

       add a new logical unit with [lun] to specific target with [id]. The
       logical unit is offered to the initiators. [path] must be block device
       files (including LVM and RAID devices) or regular files.

       --op delete --tid=[id] --lun=[lun]

       delete specific logical unit with [lun] that the target with [id] has.

       --op delete --tid=[id] --sid=[sid] --cid=[cid]

       delete specific connection with [cid] in a session with [sid] that the
       target with [id] has.  If the session has no connections after the
       operation, the session will be deleted automatically.

       --op delete

       stop all activity.

       --op update --tid=[id] --params=key1=value1,key2=value2,...

       change iSCSI IET target parameters of specific target with [id]. You
       can use parameters in ietd.conf as a key.

       --op update --tid=[id] --redirect=[destination]

       set a temporary target redirection for target [id]. [destination] MUST
       be in the form <ip address>:port where :port is optional and if not
       specified port 3260 is assumed. IPv6 addresses must be surrounded by
       square brackets, e.g. [<ipv6 address>]:port. If the destination is
       empty then any existing redirection is cleared.

       --op new --tid=[id] --user --params=[user]=[name],Password=[pass]

       add a new account with [pass] for specific target.  [user] could be
       [IncomingUser] or [OutgoingUser].  If you don't specify a target (omit
       --tid option), you add a new account for discovery sessions.

       --op show --tid=[id] --user

       show a list of CHAP accounts.  If --tid is omitted or [id] is "0"
       (zero), discovery accounts are displayed.

       --op show --tid=[id] --user --params=[user]=[name]

       show CHAP account information for the account specified by [name].
       [user] can be [IncomingUser] or [OutgoingUser].  If --tid is omitted or
       [id] is "0" (zero), [name] is supposed to be a discovery account name.

       --op delete --tid=[id] --user --params=[user]=[name]

       delete specific account having [name] of specific target. [user] could
       be [IncomingUser] or [OutgoingUser].  If you don't specify a target
       (omit --tid option), you delete the account for discovery sessions.
