       scsi_info - SCSI device description tool


       scsi_info device


       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,   HOST,  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
