Command completion for Veritas commands

Veritas Storage Foundation supports command completion for Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) commands and Dynamic Multi-Pathing (DMP) commands.

In this release, command completion is supported only on the bash shell. The shell must be bash version 2.4 or later.

To use this feature, press Tab while entering a supported VxVM or DMP command. The command is completed as far as possible. When there is a choice, the command completion displays the next valid options for the command. Enter one of the displayed values. A value in brackets indicates a user-specified value.

Note:

Platform-specific options are not supported with command completion.

By default, you can use the command completion feature by invoking the bash shell on every log in. If you want to permanently enable the command completion, use the following command:

# vxdctl cmdcompletion enable

The enable command completion creates the .bash_profile file, if it is not present.

To permanently disable the command completion, use the following command:

# vxdctl cmdcompletion disable

See the vxdctl(1M) manual page.

The following commands support command completion:
