arcconf playconfig

Description

Note: This command is supported on Windows systems only.

Configures a controller using a XML server template file produced by the SAVECONFIG command (see arcconf saveconfig). Use this command to deploy the same controller configuration on multiple servers in your storage space.

Note:
  1. The XML server template file (default, saveconfig.xml) is editable. For example, you may need to change the disk drive capacity, logical drive size, or RAID level.
  2. Drives from the same vendor with slightly different capacities (147GB vs 150GB, for instance) are considered interchangeable. If the interchange results in a change in logical drive capacity, the drive is scaled, as needed. For example, if the new drives have 4% more capacity due to vendor or model changes, then all logical drives are increased in size by 4%.
  3. Be sure to check the log file to verify that the controller was configured successfully. The exit codes, shown below, indicate the success or failure of the operation and if the system needs to be rebooted.

    Code Value Meaning
    SUCCESS 0 Configuration succeeded, no reboot is required.
    FAILURE_GENERAL 1 An error occurred and the configuration could not be completed.
    SUCCESS_REBOOT 2 Configuration succeeded, but a reboot is required.

Syntax

ARCCONF PLAYCONFIG <Input XML File> [LogFile] [FORCE ALL|LOGICALSIZE] 

Parameters

Input XML File
The pathname of the server template file. The default server template file is available at C:\PMCS\Logs\saveconfig.xml.
LogFile
Sets the pathname of the error log file. By default, the error log is available at C:\PMCS\Logs\playconfig.log.
FORCE
Forces deployment of the server even if the controller does not support all features, or the drive capacity does not match the configuration in the input XML file. Use FORCE ALL to force deployment of all features; use FORCE LOGICALSIZE to force deployment of just the logical drives.

Examples

ARCCONF PLAYCONFIG server1_config.xml playconfig.log FORCE ALL
