Commonly used command line options are listed below. Executing a command without any parameters lists the full usage of for the command.

Storage pool configuration

List configured pools

/quadstorvtl/bin/spconfig -l
/quadstorvtl/bin/spconfig --list

Add a pool

/quadstorvtl/bin/spconfig -a -g <pool name> -d (enable deduplication) -u (enable dedupe metadata)

For example

/quadstorvtl/bin/spconfig -a -g Pool1 -d 
/quadstorvtl/bin/spconfig --add --pool=<pool name> --enable-dedupe

The above command will create a pool named 'Pool1' with deduplication enabled for data in the pool. The deduplication tables for this pool are maintained in the Default pool

Other options are 
--enable-dedupe-metadata : Pool maintains its own deduplication tables. Its recommended that the Default pool maintain the deduplication tables 
--enable-verify : Enable byte-per-byte verification of possible duplicate data. 
--worm=1 : Enable WORM for vcartridges created in the pool 
--worm=0 : Diable WORM for vcartridges created in the pool (Default) 
--auto-replicate=1 : Enable automatic replication of unmounted or ejected vcartridges 
--auto-replicate=0 : Disable automatic replication of unmcounted or ejected vcartridges (Default) 
--auto-export=1 : Enable automatic export to physical tape for ejected vcartridges 
--auto-export=0 : Disable automatic export to physical tape for ejected vcartridges (Default)

Delete a pool

/quadstorvtl/bin/spconfig -x -g <pool name>
/quadstorvtl/bin/spconfing --delete --pool=<pool name>

Physical storage configuration

List all disks

/quadstorvtl/bin/bdconfig -l

Listing all configured disks

/quadstorvtl/bin/bdconfig -l -c

Listing all disks excluding configured disks

/quadstorvtl/bin/bdconfig -l -e

Add a disk

/quadstorvtl/bin/bdconfig -a -d <devicepath> -g <pool name>
Where <devicepath> is the value listed under the "Name" column in the output of a bdconfig -l 

For example

/quadstorvtl/bin/bdconfig -a -d /dev/sda adds /dev/sda to the Default pool

Remove a configured disk

/quadstorvtl/bin/bdconfig -x -d <devicepath>

VTL Configuration

Display VTL emulation type codes

Every medium changer device and tape drive emulated has a type code assigned by the system. /quadstorvtl/bin/vtconfig –h displays the type code assigned and is as shown below

Adding a VTL

/quadstorvtl/bin/vtconfig -a -v <vtl name> -t <type> -s <number of slots> -i <number of ie ports> -d <drive type> -c <drive count> -d <drive type> -e <drive start address> -f <slot start address>

In the above command type and drive type will be the library and drive type codes. Slot count is optional and if slot count is zero or not specified, the system will calculate the number of slots based on the drive type and the available space in the storage pool. The default drive start address of 1 and slot start address of 2 will be used if these values are not specified.

Deleting a VTL

/quadstorvtl/bin/vtconfig –x –v <vtl name>

Enabling deduplication

/quadstorvtl/bin/vtconfig -m -v <vtl name> -e 1

Disabling deduplication

/quadstorvtl/bin/vtconfig -m -v <vtl name> -e 0
