scsi_mandat - check SCSI device support for mandatory commands
This bash shell script calls several SCSI commands on the given DEVICE
These SCSI commands are considered mandatory (although that varies a little
depending on which standard/draft the DEVICE
complies with). The
results of each test and a pass/fail count are output.
Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
- -h, --help
- print out the usage message then exit.
- -L, --log
- the output to stderr (from each SCSI command executed) is
appended to a file called 'scsi_mandat.err' in the current working
- -q, --quiet
- the amount of output is reduced and typically only the
pass/fail count is output.
- -v, --verbose
- increase level or verbosity.
The exit status of this script is the number of "bad" errors found. So
an exit status of 0 means all mandatory SCSI commands worked as expected.
