HP-UX command summary
ioscan -C class -f
class is the type of interface, as follows:
tape specifies tape drives.
ext_bus specifies SCSI controllers.
mknod /dev/spt/cCARDtTARGETlLUN c Major 0xIITL00
The following describe the device file names:
CARD is the card instance number of the adapter.
TARGET is the SCSI ID of the robotic control.
LUN is the SCSI logical unit number (LUN) of the robot.
Major is the character major number (from the lsdev command).
II are two hexadecimal digits that represent the card instance number.
T is a hexadecimal digit that represents the SCSI ID of robotic control.
L is a hexadecimal digit that represents the SCSI LUN of the robotic control.
lsdev -d driver
mksf -C tape -H hw-path -b BEST -u -n
Creates the device files for tape drives. The hw-path is the hardware path of the tape drive, as specified by the ioscan command.
