cdi_offline - issue an offline SCSI command to a tape device


       cdi_offline -f device [ -v ] [ -t { s | t | g | n | m | i } ]


       The  cdi_offline  program  issues  an  offline  SCSI  command to a tape
       device.  The cdi_offline program also returns the status of  the  named
       SCSI device (specified by the -f option).  This operation is synonymous
       to issuing a load with no re-tension, and rewind to  the  beginning  of
       tape SCSI command.


       -f     device
            Specifies  the  device  to  send  the  offline request to.  The -f
            option is a required option.


       -t     Use the -t option to specify the method of tape functions to use
              to  issue  the  offline  SCSI  command.  If the -t option is not
              specified, the default method is to use the OS tape driver  SCSI
              passthrough  functions.   Please refer to the libcdi (1) manpage
              for the complete list of access methods currently  supported  by
              the cdi_offline program.

       -v     Run the program in verbose mode.  This option will print out the
              version number of the CDI library used by the program.


       Sample output including drive status information:

     % cdi_offline -f /dev/rmt/2cbn

      CDI_OFFLINE successful.
       elapsed time for command was 11 seconds
       cdi_info.drivestat is:
         status = 0, DRIVE_STATUS_READY
         msg = null
