eject - eject a removable media device
eject [ [ controller_id ] scsi_id [ lun ] | device | dir ]
eject ejects a removable mediad device. If the device has mounted
filesystems, eject will first try to unmount them.
Without any options, eject will act upon the first device it finds in the
hardware inventory table.
Specify the device to eject. The device may be specified using any
of the names described in the mediad(1m) man page. Note that some
devices do not support software eject.
dir If mediad is running, the mount point of the filesystem on the disk
to be ejected can be specified.
If mediad is running, the controller id and the scsi id of the
device to be ejected can be specified. If the controller id is left
out, it will default to 0.
