SDAOE(3)                                                 SDAOE(3)

     NAME
          sdaoe - ATA-over-Ethernet (AoE) storage device interface

     SYNOPSIS
          bind -a #S /dev
          echo config switch on spec l type aoe//dev/aoe/shelf.slot >/dev/sdctl
          echo config switch off spec l >/dev/sdctl
          /dev/sdl0/ctl
          /dev/sdl0/raw
          /dev/sdl0/data
          ...
          addaoe letter unit

     DESCRIPTION
          Sdaoe has a few quirks because network-attached storage
          can't be enumerated as directly-attached storage can.  The
          default first controller letter for AoE devices is `e'.
          Each sdaoe device must be configured explicitly.

          Addaoe packages up the `switch on' invocation as an rc
          script.

          To boot from an AoE root, the sd device must be configured
          on boot by either PXE booting or booting from directly-
          attached storage and adding two configuration lines to
          plan9.ini(8) for aoeif, listing the names of the Ethernet
          interface(s) to use, and aoedev=letter!#æ/aoe/lun.

     EXAMPLES
          To configure target (LUN) 42.0 on #S/sde0,

               echo config switch on spec e type aoe//dev/aoe/42.0 >/dev/sdctl

          To turn this device off,

               echo config switch off spec e >/dev/sdctl

          To boot using target 42.0 as #S/sde0 and as root, over Eth-
          ernet interfaces 0 and 1,

               aoeif=ether0 ether1
               aoedev=e!#æ/aoe/42.0

     BUGS

     SDAOE(3)                                                 SDAOE(3)

          It is not currently possible to boot from an AoE target
          without an external bootstrap like PXE.
