: Could somebody ask me what are the differents option available on this programme ?
: In the documentation I have, there are :
: GVPScsiCtrl <unit number> DCOFF : Deconnect/Connect OFF : That's ok
: GVPScsiCtrl -r : ???
: GVPScsiCtrl -s : ???
From the Combo-030 manual:
-r : used with SCSI autoboot algorithm to rescan the SCSI bus for target
devices that did not respond fast enough or that have not been connected
(or powered on) at autoboot time. Since the GVP SCSI driver does not
wait for slow devices to get ready if it has already recognized a
bootable partition, this command should be inserted somewhere into your
S:Startup-Sequence, so slow SCSI targets get a few more seconds to "wake
up". This command can be issued at any time, it will also mount all
partitions. Remember that having SCSI targets that are not currently
powered-on connected to the SCSI might adversely affect the reliability
of other SCSI devices connected!
-m : without any options will scan all drives that are currently
recognized by the SCSI driver and will try to mount all of the partitions
(if this has not yet been done). It will return control to the CLI after
it has finished this attempt, no matter if it has been successful or
not. This is useful if you have booted a system with an empty
removable-meium device and want to insert the cartridge later.
-s : will do the same as above, but if it does not succeed in mounting a
particular unit (e.g. because there is no cartridge inserted), it will
wait until the user actually inserts a cartridge (this is also the
default behaviour when GvpScsiCtrl is started from Workbench). This
option is usually used by Workbench users in their S:Startup-Sequence to
make the removeable-medium icon show up automatically the first time they
insert a cartridge. The program will terminate as soon as all units have
been mounted successfully.
If GvpScsiCtrl has been started from the CLI and is currently waiting for
a particular unit to become ready, it can be aborted by typing CTRL-C or
-- if it has been Run in the background -- with the CLI command "Break".
Use status to find out the process-ID of GvpScsiCtrl and then issue a
Break command with this particular ID to terminate the execution.
