NAME

rscan - Collects node information from one or more hardware control points.


SYNOPSIS

rscan [-h|--help]

rscan [-v|--version]

rscan [-V|--verbose] noderange [-u][-w][-x|-z]


DESCRIPTION

The rscan command lists hardware information for each node managed by the hardware control points specified in noderange.

For the management module of blade, if the blade server is a Flex system P node, the fsp belongs to the blade server also will be scanned.

Note: The first line of the output always contains information about the hardware control point. When using the rscan command to generate output for HMC or IVM hardware control points, it provides the FSPs and BPAs as part of the output. The only exception is the rscan -u flag which provides updates made hardware control point in the xCAT database.


OPTIONS

-h Display usage message.

-v Command Version.

-V Verbose output.

-u Updates and then prints out node definitions in the xCAT database for CEC/BPA. It updates the existing nodes that contain the same mtms and serial number for nodes managed by the specified hardware control point. This primarily works with CEC/FSP and frame/BPA nodes when the node name is not the same as the managed system name on hardware control point (HMC), This flag will update the BPA/FSP node name definitions to be listed as the managed system name in the xCAT database.

For the Flex system manager, both the blade server and fsp object of xCAT will be updated if the mpa and slot id are matched to the object which has been defined in the xCAT database.

Note: only the matched object will be updated.

-w Writes output to xCAT database.

-x XML format.

-z Stanza formated output.


RETURN VALUE

  0 The command completed successfully.
  1 An error has occurred.
