       jbexercise - NetWorker jukebox exerciser

       jbexercise  -m model -c control_port [ -V vendor_type ] [ -CdsIv ] [ -D
       drive_number ] [ -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     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 scsidev@1.5.0 which could be
	      found by issuing the inquire(8) command).

       -d     Tests only drives.

       -D     Tests only the drive with the specified drive_number.  The logi‐
	      cal  drive_number	 starts from 0 for the physical drive 1 in the

       -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
	      jukeboxes	  which	 require  special  handling.  For  these,  the
	      specific model name should be specified with  the	 '-m'  option.
	      For  a  list  of	currently  supported  jukebox models, run this
	      command without any arguments.

       -s     Tests only slots.

       -S     Tests only the specified slot.

       -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.

       nsrjb(8), nsr_jukebox(5)

       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.
