SYNOPSIS

sg_reset_wp [--all] [--help] [--verbose] [--version] [--zone=ID] DEVICE

DESCRIPTION

Sends a SCSI RESET WRITE POINTER command to the DEVICE. This command is found in the ZBC draft standard revision 2 (zbc-r02.pdf).

OPTIONS

Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
-a, --all sets the ALL field in the cdb. This causes a reset write pointer operation of all open zones and full zones. When this option is given then the --zone=ID option is ignored. Either this option or the --zone=ID option is required.
-h, --help output the usage message then exit.
-v, --verbose
  increase the level of verbosity, (i.e. debug output).
-V, --version
  print the version string and then exit.
-z, --zone=ID
  where ID is placed in the cdb’s ZONE ID field. A zone id is a zone start logical block address (LBA). This causes a reset write pointer operation on the zone identified by the ZONE ID field. The default value is 0. Either this option or the --all option is required. ID is assumed to be in decimal unless prefixed with ’0x’ or has a trailing ’h’ which indicate hexadecimal.

EXIT STATUS

The exit status of sg_reset_wp is 0 when it is successful. Otherwise see the sg3_utils(8) man page.
