Bug#623847: ITP: rescan-scsi-bus -- tool for reliable scsi hotplugging in linux
 
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ritesh Raj Sarraf <rrs@debian.org>

* Package name : rescan-scsi-bus
Version : 1.48
Upstream Author : Kurt Garloff <kurt@garloff.de>
* URL : http://www.garloff.de/kurt/linux/
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: Bash
Description : tool for reliable scsi hotplugging in linux

Linux allows you to add and remove SCSI devices without rebooting by
using the echo "scsi add-single-device H C I L" > /proc/scsi/scsi
command (H = host, C = channel, I = SCSI ID, L = SCSI LUN). The
remove-single-device command works similarily.
..
This tool provides an easy interface to interact with the SCSI subsystem
in the linux kernel to perform SCSI Hotplugging




To Debian-Devel:
This package is just one single shell script. But an important one. The
rescan-scsi-bus.sh script helps a lot in the SAN space where there could
be targets with sporadic connecitons. Is it okay to package a single
shell script as a package?

This is already packaged in scsitools!

Huh, I occasionally wondered whatever happened to 'scsiadd'.
Guess its functionality was subsumed into scsitools.

Effectively, yes, although "subsumed" isn't quite appropriate - both scsiadd
and scsitools required /proc/scsi/scsi which was removed from the default
configuration in the linux-2.6 packages. scsiadd was never updated to cope
with this change, and therefore ended up being removed; scsitools was
(unfortunately not in time for Squeeze though).

Regards,

Stephen
