scsi_info - SCSI device description tool
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 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 con-
verts these arbitrary device assignments back to the user-configured
