SYNOPSISjbexercise-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.
OPTIONS-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 email@example.com 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.

Most diagnostic messages are specific to each type of jukebox. General
messages include the following:

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.
