NAME
isnsd - iSNS server daemon SYNOPSIS
isnsd [-f] [-4] [-6] [-c filename] [-d debug-facility] [--dump-db] [--init] DESCRIPTION
Isnsd implements the iSNS protocol as defined in RFC 4171. iSNS is a discovery protocol for iSCSI and iFCP. OPTIONS
By default, isnsd will take most of its settings from the configuration file /etc/isns/isnsd.conf, with the exception of the following options: --config filename, -c filename This option overrides the default configuration file. --foreground,-f By default, isnsd will put itself into the background. By specifying this option, you can tell it to run in the foreground. Any error messages or debug output will be printed to the console rather than being sent to syslog. -4 tells isnsd to create an IPv4 socket only. Normally, it defaults to IPv6 (which will accept both IPv4 and IPv6 connections). -6 tells isnsd explicitly to create an IPv6 socket only. Since it defaults to IPv6 anyway, this is really a no-op. --debug facility, -d facility enables debugging. Valid facilities are +--------+-----------------------------------------------------+ |socket | network send/receive | |auth | authentication and security related information | |message | iSNS protocol layer | |state | database state | |scn | SCN (state change notification) messages | |esi | ESI (entity status inquiry) messages | |all | all of the above | +--------+-----------------------------------------------------+ --dump-db This is a helper function that will read the database from the file system, and display it in human readable form. When using this option, isnsd will not open any sockets, and terminate immediately after display the database. This option is intended to be used by the administrator when suspecting that the database contains bad/inconsistent information. --init This option will create the server's authentication key, and the required DSA parameters. The private key is stored in the file specified by the AuthKey option (usually /etc/isns/auth_key). The public portion of the key is written to same directory, with the suffix .pub appended to the key file name. SEE ALSO

NAME
isnsdd - iSNS discovery daemon SYNOPSIS
isnsdd [-f] [-c filename] [-d debug-facility] DESCRIPTION
Isnsdd is a client side daemon for iSNS. It registers storage nodes and portals with the iSNS service, and refreshes these registrations in a timely manner. The daemon also registers itself to receive SCN notifications, and processes these. It can be configured to invoke an external helper application for each status notification received. The path name of the helper application can be specified via the SCNCallout option in the configuration file. OPTIONS
By default, isnsd will take most of its settings from the configuration file /etc/isns/isnsdd.conf, with the addition of the following com- mand line options: --config filename, -c filename This option overrides the default configuration file. --foreground,-f By default, isnsd will put itself into the background. By specifying this option, you can tell it to run in the foreground. Any error messages or debug output will be printed to the console rather than being sent to syslog. --role role This tells the discovery daemon in which capacity is should register itself with the iSNS server. Role can be either initiator, or control. The default is to register as an initiator. Registering target nodes needs to use a different mechanism, as the iSCSI target server needs to inform the discovery daemon about each exported target separately. This is not implemented yet. --debug facility, -d facility enables debugging. Valid facilities are +--------+-----------------------------------------------------+ |socket | network send/receive | |auth | authentication and security related information | |message | iSNS protocol layer | |state | database state | |scn | SCN (state change notification) messages | |esi | ESI (entity status inquiry) messages | |all | all of the above | +--------+-----------------------------------------------------+ SEE ALSO
