scsi_ready [--brief] [--help] [--verbose] DEVICE [DEVICE]* DESCRIPTION
This Bourne shell script calls the sg_turs utility on each given DEVICE. This will send a SCSI TEST UNIT READY command to each DEVICE. Disks, tape drives and DVD/BD players amongst others may respond to this SCSI command. OPTIONS
Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well. -b, --brief for each DEVICE given output a line containing either ' ready' or ' device not ready'. If DEVICE is not found or there is another serious error then an error message will appear instead. -h, --help print out the usage message then exit. -v, --verbose increase level or verbosity. EXIT STATUS
The exit status of this script is 0 when it is successful. Otherwise the exit status is that of the last sg_turs utility called. See the sg3_utils(8) man page. AUTHORS
