Options

Option are ordered by their long name. Those without a long name are ordered as if their single letter was a long name.

-a, --alltargets

scan all targets, not just currently existing [default: disabled]

--attachpq3

tell kernel to attach sg to LUN 0 that reports PQ=3

-c

enables scanning of channels 0 1   [default: 0 / all detected ones]

--channels=CLIST

scan only channel(s) in CLIST

--color

use coloured prefixes OLD/NEW/DEL

-d

enable debug                       [default: 0]

-f, --flush

flush failed multipath devices     [default: disabled]

--forceremove

remove and readd every device (DANGEROUS)

--forcerescan

rescan existing devices

-h, --help

print usage message then exit

--hosts=HLIST

scan only host(s) in HLIST

--ids=TLIST

scan only target ID(s) in TLIST

--ignore-rev

ignore (firmware) revision change. This is the third text field (4 bytes long) in a standard INQUIRY response.

-i, --issue-lip

issue a FibreChannel LIP reset     [default: disabled]

-I SECS, --issue-lip-wait=SECS

issue a FibreChannel LIP reset and then wait SECS seconds.

-L NUM

activates scanning for LUNs 0--NUM [default: 0]

-l

activates scanning for LUNs 0--7   [default: 0]

--largelun

tell kernel to support LUNs > 7 even on SCSI2 devs

--luns=NLIST

scan only lun(s) in NLIST

-m, --multipath

update multipath devices           [default: disabled]

--nooptscan

don't stop looking for LUNs is 0 is not found

--nosync

do not issue a sync [default: sync if remove]

-r, --remove

enables removing of devices        [default: disabled]

--reportlun2

tell kernel to try REPORT_LUN even on SCSI2 devices

-s, --resize

look for resized disks and reload associated multipath devices, if applicable

--sparselun

tell kernel to support sparse LUN numbering

--sync

issue a sync [default: sync if remove]

-u, --update

look for existing disks that have been remapped

-V, --version

shows version string then exits. The version string is a numeric datestamp of the form YYYYMMDD.

-w, --wide

scan for target device IDs 0--15   [default: 0--7]

Host numbers may thus be specified either directly on cmd line (deprecated) or with the --hosts=LIST parameter (recommended).

Arguments to options that end in LIST (e.g. TLIST) can have this form:
   A[-B][,C[-D]]...
which is a comma separated list of single values and/or ranges (no spaces allowed).
