14.12.6. Uploading and Downloading Storage Volumes

This section will instruct how to upload and download information to and from storage volumes.

14.12.6.1. Uploading contents to a storage volume

The vol-upload --pool pool-or-uuid --offset bytes --length bytes vol-name-or-key-or-path local-file command uploads the contents of specified local-file to a storage volume. The command requires --pool pool-or-uuid which is the name or UUID of the storage pool the volume is in. It also requires vol-name-or-key-or-path which is the name or key or path of the volume to wipe. The --offset option is the position in the storage volume at which to start writing the data. --length length dictates an upper limit for the amount of data to be uploaded. An error will occur if the local-file is greater than the specified --length.
