SCSI_INFO(8)                                         SCSI_INFO(8)

NAME
       scsi_info - SCSI device description tool

SYNOPSIS
       scsi_info device

DESCRIPTION
       Scsi_info  opens  the  specified  SCSI  device  file,  and
       retrieves its actual SCSI  address  parameters.   It  also
       looks  up  the device in /proc/scsi/scsi and retrieves the
       device's vendor information, if available.  Its output  is
       a  pair  of  Bourne-style  shell  commands  to  define the
       SCSI_ID and MODEL variables  based  on  this  information.
       The SCSI_ID variable has three comma-separated fields: the
       SCSI channel number, the device ID, and the  logical  unit
       number.   In most cases, the channel and logical unit will
       be 0.

       The reason for the existence of this utility lies  in  the
       peculiar  method  for  assigning  minor  device numbers to
       Linux SCSI devices.  Devices are  numbered  based  on  the
       order  in  which  they are detected, irrespective of their
       device addresses.  This tool automatically converts  these
       arbitrary  device  assignments back to the user-configured
       addresses.
