taskstate - a logical object definition in the xCAT database.


taskstate Attributes: command, disable, node, pid, reserve, state


Logical objects of this type are stored in the xCAT database in one or more tables. Use the following commands to manipulate the objects: mkdef, chdef, lsdef, and rmdef. These commands will take care of knowing which tables the object attributes should be stored in. The attribute list below shows, in parentheses, what tables each attribute is stored in.

taskstate Attributes:

Set to ‘yes’ or ‘1’ to comment out this row.
