     VBLADE(8)                                               VBLADE(8)

          vblade - virtual AoE target

          vblade [ -ir ] [ -s size ] [ -a shelf.slot ] [ -m eamask ][
          -c config ] file [ -e ether ]

          For each file specified, vblade serves it as an AoE (ATA-
          over-Ethernet) target via the specified interfaces.  The
          default interface is /net/ether0.  Since AoE uses raw Ether-
          net frames, the target is only visible on the local ethernet

          All target-related options are reset for each file.

          -i         Initialize the configuration header in file. All
                     previous configuration information is lost.
                     Without this option, configuration is read from
                     file and command like options override previous

          -r         Raw.  Do not use a configuration header.  This is
                     useful when exporting a device or file not gener-
                     ally exported by vblade.

          -s n       The exported target will have size n, rather than
                     the available space in the target.  A size may
                     end in `p', `t', `g', `m', or `k' to specify a
                     binary multiplier.

          -a m.n     Specify the shelf and slot (or major and minor)
                     address of the target.  Valid shelf numbers are
                     between 0 and 65534.  Valid slots are 0-255.

          -m eamask  Specifiy a ethernet mask.  Multiple masks may
                     be set.  If set, only respond to targets in the
                     mask set.  Ignore all other requests.

          -c s       Set the AoE config string to s.

          -e ether   Listen to the network port ether. Multiple ports
                     may be specified.

          Security depends on control of the local Ethernet segment.
          It may be unwise to serve AoE on a segment bridged to a
          wireless network.
