jbexercise -m model -c control_port [ -V vendor_type ] [ -CdsIv ] [ -D drive ] [ -S slot ]
The jbexercise command tests the functionality of a jukebox. Before the command can be run, all contents of the jukebox must be emptied except for media loaded in the first and last slots. These pieces of media will be moved around the jukebox as part of the various tests performed by jbexercise. There are two major tests of functionality: drives and slots. Normally both the drive and slot tests are run. Individual component types can be tested by using the -d (for drives) and -s (for slots) options. In addition, specific components can be singled out in the -D and -S options. When these options are given, the only test run is on that particular component, that is, if a specific slot is named, the drives test is not run. For drives, the logical address of the component should be given. For slots, the physical address should be given. Upon startup, the program queries the user for the non-rewinding path- names of the drives, if any, found in the configuration of the jukebox. This query is not performed if the user is using a jukebox which does not require media to be ejected from a device, that is, the device has automatic ejection capabilities. The first test moves the media from the first slot to each of the drives. No operator intervention is required. The second test loads the media from various slots to the first drive. The default is to test the media in the first and last slots in the jukebox. If a specific slot is being tested, the operator must first load that slot with media.
-C This makes jbexercise return the configuration of the jukebox. No tests are run. -c Specifies the control port which is used to interface with the jukebox (for example, 1.5.0 from email@example.com which could be found by issuing the inquire(1) command). -d Tests only drives. -D Tests only the specified drive. -I Returns only an inventory of the jukebox. No tests are run. -m Specifies the model of the jukebox. Note that for most jukeboxes, the model 'Standard SCSI jukebox' should be the model used with the '-m' option. However, there are certain -v Verbose mode. Prints more information. -V Specifies a particular vendor id. This allows the vendor to use the same driver for a number of jukebox models.
Most diagnostic messages are specific to each type of jukebox. General messages include the following: invalid <component> specified An invalid id for the <component> was given. The id must be within the valid ranges of the jukebox configuration. <compo- nent> can be a drive, port or slot. status incorrect, media present There is media loaded in a component but the component status operation does not indicate this. status incorrect, invalid slot location The component status operation is giving the incorrect source slot of the loaded media. no drives found!!! No drives were listed in the configuration. no slots found!!! No slots were listed in the configuration.
