DESCRIPTION

This is the IBM hypervisor virtual console server (hvcs) administration utility.

OPTIONS

-all
Close all open vty-server adapter connections.
Inclusion of a single ‘-noisy’ flag will direct the utility to output a list of all the adapters that were closed.
-close hvcs<index>
Close the vty-server adapter connection that maps to the hvcs device node specified in the option.
By default this operation only exhibits output on error. It is silent on success and silent if the adapter is already closed. When accompanied by a ‘-noisy’ flag this option will output the device to adapter mapping and a message indicating that the adapter has been closed.
-console partition
Which /dev/hvcs<index> node provides the console for the option specified partition? This option takes a partition number and returns a status string which contains the device node that maps to the target partition's slot zero vty-server adapter [A console adapter is always in slot zero].
Inclusion of a single ‘-noisy’ flag does not change the default output of this option.
-help
Output the utility help text.
-node hvcs<index>
Which vty-server adapter is mapped to the option specified /dev/hvcs<index> node? This option takes a device node and returns a status string which contains the vty-server adapter mapped to that node.
Inclusion of a single ‘-noisy’ flag does not change the default output of this option.
-noisy
This directive is optional. Without a ‘-noisy’ directive the hvcsadmin utility is in silent mode by default (except in the case of errors and output requests). The output verbosity of the utility is managed by stacking ‘-noisy’ directives. A single instance of ‘-noisy’ indicates that the utility should output in status mode. A second instance of ‘-noisy’ indicates that the utility should output in verbose mode. Verbose mode is generally used for script tracing and won't be used by a casual user unless problems arise.
-rescan
Direct the hvcs driver to rescan partner information for all vty-server adapters it manages. This may expose additional adapters and partners.
-status
Outputs a table with each row containing a vty-server, adapter, its /dev/hvcs<index> device node mapping, and the adapter connection status. "vterm_state:0" means it is free/disconnected and "vterm_state:0" means the vty-server is connected to its vty partner adapter.
An example of hvcsadmin -status output follows:
vty-server@30000003 partition:1 slot:2 /dev/hvcs0 vterm-state:0  
vty-server@30000004 partition:15 slot:0 /dev/hvcs1 vterm-state:0
    
When this option is accompanied by a ‘-noisy’ flag it will output a line for each hvcs device node which doesn't have a current vty-server adapter mapping as well as the status demonstrated above.
-version
Out the hvcsadmin script's version number.
