Sample Script Files 315
The first line of text is the show string command. This command displays
text bounded by quotation marks (" ") on a monitor screen when the script
file runs. In this example, the text Create RAID 5 Virtual Disk 7 on existing
Disk Group 1 serves as a title describing the expected results of running this
The line beginning //Create is a comment explaining that the purpose of this
script file is to create a new virtual disk by using the create virtualDisk
command on an existing disk group.
The line beginning //Note: is a comment in the script file explaining that the
size of the last virtual disk created uses all of the available capacity because
the capacity parameter is not used.
The command in this example creates a new virtual disk in disk group 1. The
virtual disk has a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) level of 5. The
virtual disk name (user label) is 7. (Note the quotation marks around the 7.
The quotation marks indicate that the information in the marks is a label.)
The new virtual disk is assigned to the RAID controller module in slot 0 in the
RAID enclosure. The segment size is set to 16.
The following syntax is the general form of the command:
create virtualDisk diskGroup=diskGroupNumber
virtualDiskCapacity | owner=(0 | 1) | segmentSize=
[enclosureLossProtect=(TRUE | FALSE)]
The general form of the command shows the optional parameters in a
different sequence than the optional parameters in the example. You can
enter optional parameters in any sequence. You must enter the required
parameters in the sequence shown in the command descriptions.
The line show "Setting additional attributes for virtual disk 7" is another
example of using the show string command. This command is placed here to
tell you that the create virtualDisk command ran successfully. In addition,
properties that could not be set by the create virtualDisk command are
