NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       scsimgr - manage SCSI devices and device databases

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /sbin/scsimgr -option  [operands...]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

   The Update Options
       Use  the  following options to update device special files
       and the databases: Request that the kernel scan  all  SCSI
       buses  for  devices.  If there have been device changes on
       any of the buses, the on-disk database and device  special
       files are updated to reflect the changes.


              The  scan_all  command should be used with caution.
              On systems with a large number of SCSI  buses,  the
              -scan_all  option  can  take a long time to run and
              can  affect  the  performance  of  other  processes
              accessing  SCSI  devices.   Request that the kernel
              scan the specified bus for devices.  If there  have
              been  device changes on the bus, the device special
              files are updated to reflect the changes.   Request
              that  the  kernel scan the specified bus for a specific
 device. If there has been  a  change  to  the
              attributes  of that device, the device special file
              for the device is updated to reflect  the  changes.
              Synchronizes  the information in the device special
              files and the kernel in-memory database.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following operands are used in  many  of  the  command
       options.   Other operands are unique to individual options
       and are defined with them.  The number of a bus. The  number
  must  be 0 or larger.  The number of a target device.
       The range of the number is 0 to 15.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]


       See the hwmgr(8) and dsfmgr(8) reference pages for  information
 on utilities that supersede the scsimgr utility.

       The  scsimgr  utility  automatically  makes device special
       files for new devices.

       The scan options stop updating the  device  special  files
       for a device when they encounter an error.

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following  is  the  exit status when the command runs
       from a program: Success.  Failure.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Executable image.  System configuration options.  Contains
       an entry to define /scsimgr utility to boot process.
