Dell EMC Metro node 7.0.1 Product Guide


The VPlexcli supports all metro node operations.

The CLI is divided into command contexts:

  • Global commands are accessible from all contexts.
  • Other commands are arranged in a hierarchical context tree, and can be executed only from the appropriate location in the context tree.

The following example shows a CLI session that performs the same tasks as shown in Figure.

Example 1 Claim storage using the CLI:

In the following example, the claimingwizard command finds unclaimed storage volumes, claims them as thin storage, and assigns names from a PowerStore hints file:

VPlexcli:/clusters/cluster-2/storage-elements/storage-volumes> claimingwizard --file /home/service/power_store_claim.txt --thin-rebuild
Found unclaimed storage-volume VPD83T3:68ccf0980001c3a3bf416ca07c8c71b5 vendor DellEMC : claiming and naming power_store_claim_name_2.

Found unclaimed storage-volume VPD83T3:68ccf0980000bb040913bbe50c408407 vendor DellEMC : claiming and naming power_store_claim_name_1.

Claimed 2 storage-volumes in storage array power_store_claim

Claimed 2 storage-volumes in total.


The Dell EMC CLI Guide for the metro node provides a comprehensive list of metro node commands and detailed instructions on using those commands.
