XenServer 7 xe pdb-* Uknown Command



  • Working with local storage in XenServer is of course managed via a command line. Problem is, all the guides I've found use

    xe pdb-plug
    xe pdb-list
    xe pdb-unplug
    

    All of which return Unknown command. Did they actually remove functionality? What did I miss this time?

    That is what "xe man" offers for the common list.

    And here is the full help menu.

  • Which pbd-plug and pbd-unplug are included in the full list.

    Maybe you need to run as sudo on xs7?



  • @DustinB3403 That might be where I was missing things. I should've been looking at 'xe help --all', thanks.



  • Now I have no idea what's going on, 'xe pdb-list' works now. Weird.

    COMPUTERS!

    I'm gonna chalk this one up to me not being able to type xe pbd right, it's coming out as xe pdb more often than not.

    @Minion-Queen I'm feeling you today.



  • I think I'm in the twilight zone today, found a 750GB USB drive that's showing up as 5.5TB. Maybe I should've just taken a vacation day today.
