Novell Storage Management Services configuration file.
smdrd.conf can be used to control various parameters of the smdrd(8) daemon. SMDR represents the SMS framework, as it controls the communication between applications, remote SMDRs and Target Service Agents. smdrd(8) looks for this configuration file in the /etc/opt/novell/sms/smdrd.conf location. On starting the SMDR daemon this file is processed for relevant configuration information. On receiving the HUP signal smdrd rereads the configuration file, this is useful for refreshing a running instance of smdrd without having to bring down the service. Alternately, smsconfig(1) can be used to refresh the SMDR daemon.
The format of smdrd.conf file is as follows:
Lines starting with the pound symbol (#) are treated as comments and ignored. Blank lines are also ignored. Other lines are considered as configuration options.
Each configuration option has the following format:
Options and Values are case insensitive, where applicable. There should be no space between Option and the colon (:) or equal (=) symbol. When using the equal (=) symbol, there should be no space between the symbol and the value. Any Option that does not have a name value pair representation follows its own format as detailed below.
Following configuration options are supported:
Specifies the TSA modules that smdrd should autoload at startup. By default tsafs(1) is autoloaded. The autoload option has the following format,
autoload <Module Name> <Module Options>.
The first parameter "Module Name" is the name of the TSA to load, which can optionally be followed by "Module Options" specifying any TSA supported options.
Enables SMDR to resolve targets running SMDR daemon using configured DNS server or hosts name entries. Default is enabled for DNS/hosts resolution. Valid values are Enable/Disable.
- ip=<IP Address>
SMDR daemon uses <IP address> to listen on. This can be any one of the bound IP address in the machine. Default is to listen on the first bound IP address. IP address should be mentioned in the dotted format.
Enables advertisement and discovery of targets running SMDR across the network registered to SLP. OpenSLP libraries are needed for discovery and any SLP v2 compliant SLP daemon should be running for advertisement. Valid values are Enable/Disable.
