This command synchronizes the host metadata with InfiniBox.

  • Metadata information is available on the InfiniBox GUI or InfiniShell.

infinihost metadata sync

Output exmaple:

Updated metadata in system 1032 for host id 82214
hostname = 'prod-linux1'
system = 'Linux'
platform = 'Linux-2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64-x86_64-with-redhat-6.3-Santiago'

This command searches for SCSI storage sub-systems and creates block devices for newly found sub-systems and deletes block devices for LUNs that are no longer accessible.
This command does not have an output.
As Linux does not process the capacity change unit attention, you need to unmap, rescan, map, and rescan again.

Collecting logs

This command creates an archived tar.gz file that includes information that is relevant for troubleshooting.

  1. Run the following command:

    infinihost logs collect

    The output is:

    Logs collected successfully to /tmp/infinihost-logs.2014-07-01.10-00-O5Z0aH.tar.gz
  2. Download the file and send it to Infinidat Support.
