SYNOPSIS

scsi_start [--help] [--verbose] [--wait] DEVICE [DEVICE]*

DESCRIPTION

This bash shell script calls the sg_start utility on each given DEVICE. The purpose is to spin up (start) each given DEVICE.

OPTIONS

Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
-h, --help print out the usage message then exit.
-v, --verbose
  increase level or verbosity.
-w, --wait wait for the spin up (start) on each given DEVICE to complete. The default action is to do each start in immediate mode.

NOTES

If a large number of disks are spun up at the same time (i.e. without the --wait option) then the power supply may be overloaded.

EXIT STATUS

The exit status of this script is 0 when it is successful. Otherwise the exit status is that of the last sg_start utility called. See the sg3_utils(8) man page.
