sg_rep_pip [--help] [--hex] [--maxlen=LEN] [--raw] [--readonly] [--verbose] [--version] DEVICE
Sends a SCSI REPORT PROVISIONING INITIALIZATION PATTERN command to DEVICE and outputs the data returned. This command is found in the SBC-4 draft standard, revision 21 (sbc4r21.pdf).
Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
- -h, --help
output the usage message then exit.
- -H, --hex
output the response in hexadecimal to stdout. When used once the whole response is output in ASCII hexadecimal, prefixed by an address (starting at 0) on each line. When used twice the whole response is output in hexadecimal with no leading address (on each line). The default action is the same as giving the --hex option once.
- -m, --maxlen=LEN
where LEN is the (maximum) response length in bytes. It is placed in the cdb's "allocation length" field. If not given (or LEN is zero) then 8192 is used. The maximum allowed value of LEN is 1048576.
- -r, --raw
output the SCSI response (i.e. the data-out buffer) in binary (to stdout).
- -R, --readonly
open the DEVICE read-only (e.g. in Unix with the O_RDONLY flag). The default is to open it read-write.
- -v, --verbose
increase the level of verbosity, (i.e. debug output).
- -V, --version
print the version string and then exit.
The exit status of sg_rep_pip is 0 when it is successful. Otherwise see the sg3_utils(8) man page.
