3 Getting Started

The QConvergeConsole CLI manages iSCSI, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel functions on QLogic Fibre Channel adapters, Intelligent Ethernet Adapters, and Converged Network Adapters. This chapter describes how to start the QConvergeConsole CLI using the noninteractive mode (command line interface) and the interactive mode (menu-driven interface).

Using Noninteractive Mode

Noninteractive mode is a command line interface that executes a command and its parameters, and then terminates. Use the noninteractive mode to run QConvergeConsole CLI from a script file or when you want to perform a single operation. This guide describes the noninteractive mode commands by function in the following chapters:

Chapter 4 NIC Noninteractive Commands

Chapter 5 Fibre Channel Noninteractive Commands

Chapter 6 iSCSI Noninteractive Commands

To start the noninteractive QConvergeConsole CLI in Windows1 or Linux, open an operating system shell, and then type commands with command line switches. For specific command formats, refer to the chapter for the corresponding adapter function. For example, to discover iSCSI ports on a Converged Network Adapter, issue the following command:

qaucli -pr iscsi -i

QConvergeConsole CLI is case sensitive. In addition, file names in some operating systems are case sensitive; in this case, QConvergeConsole CLI is case sensitive for that specific file.

1 For Windows 2008 or later, use administrator mode.

SN0054667-00 C

3-1

3–Getting Started Using Interactive Mode

Using Interactive Mode

Interactive mode is a menu-driven interface that manages QLogic Ethernet adapters, QLogic Fibre Channel Adapters, and all functions of QLogic Converged Network Adapters, including NIC, Fibre Channel, and iSCSI. Although the QConvergeConsole CLI contains menus for all of these adapter types, for clarity, this guide describes the interface for each adapter type separately in the following chapters:

Chapter 8 NIC Interactive Commands

Chapter 9 Fibre Channel Interactive Commands

Chapter 10 Converged Network Adapter Interactive Commands

Starting QConvergeConsole CLI in Windows

To start the QConvergeConsole CLI in interactive mode in Windows, do one of the following:

Double-click the QConvergeConsole CLI icon on the desktop.

Click Start and point to All Programs, QLogic Management Suite, and then click QConvergeConsole CLI.

Open a command prompt in the installation directory (default is

C:\Program Files\QLogic Corporation\QConvergeConsoleCLI), and then issue the following command:

qaucli

Starting QConvergeConsole CLI in Linux

To start QConvergeConsole CLI in interactive mode in Linux, issue the following command:

qaucli

-d

To generate XML discovery output, issue the -d command as follows:

> qaucli -pr nic -d <flash_file> [xml_output_file]

where flash_file is the Flash file and xml_output_file is the XML discovery output. If you omit xml_output_file, XML discovery output is written to stdout.xml.
