About this task
The link is an entity that connects the source InfiniBox system to the a target system using a predefined service. The link has to be authenticated on the target system.
The link is automatically authenticated on the target system whenever the following conditions are met:
- You are logged into the source system with the default Admin user
- The default Admin user exists on the remote system
A manual authentication is required whenever:
- You are logged into the source system with a user other than Admin (for example, a PoolAdmin)
In such a case, follow the instructions below.
This task assumes that the following entities are defined:
- Upon creating the link, the source system checks whether an automatic authentication is viable. If it is not, a screen pops up.
Fill in the user credentials for the target system.
The link is now authenticated.
link.authenticate providing the target system and user credentials.
Link-related InfiniShell commands
This section describes commands that create and authenticate links between InfiniBox systems.
link.create- This command creates a link between a network space on the local system and a target system. Such a link is required for services that span across systems, for example, Asynchronous Remote Replication.
link.authenticate- This command verifies that the user of the local system can operate the remote system as well
link.delete- This command deletes the link
link.query- This command lists the links that are defined on the system along with their state and the last time they were in use
The commands are displayed in length, including examples on the InfiniShell Reference Guide.
