Description

This article describes how to add lines to a configuration file on the storage system using wrfile.

  • No Common Internet File System Protocol (CIFS) or Network File System (NFS) access to the storage system, but the administrator needs to add an additional line to a configuration file on the storage system without editing the entire file.
  • Typically, when using the wrfile command, Ctrl-C is used to save changes, disregarding the following:read: error reading standard input: Interrupted system call.
    Other than Ctrl-C, there is no other key sequence available.
