README

The aoetools are programs that assist in using ATA over Ethernet on
systems with version 2.6 Linux kernels.

Systems running 2.4 Linux kernels do not need and should not install
the aoetools. The aoe driver for 2.4 kernels is self sufficient.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
AOE DRIVER COMPATIBILITY

If you are using udev on your system, the aoe-mkdevs and aoe-mkshelf
should not be used. Just let udev create device nodes for you. If
you need to configure udev, its manpages, in conjunction with the
example in the EtherDrive HOWTO FAQ, should help.

If you are not using udev, it is important to ensure that the device
nodes in /dev/etherd match the aoe driver. Please see devnodes.txt
for information.
--------------------------------------------------------------------


If you need to configure the software, look at the variables at the
top of the Makefile. The defaults should work for most people. When
using the defaults there's only one step to configure and install the
aoetools software and documentation:

make install

You'll need sufficient permissions to install in the default locations
if you haven't overridden them with your own locations.

Please see the aoetools manpage for a brief list of the tools.

These two are legacy commands for systems without udev.

aoe-mkdevs create character and block device files
aoe-mkshelf create block device files for one shelf address
