.TH SCSI_START "8" "May 2013" "sg3_utils\-1.36" SG3_UTILS
.SH NAME
scsi_start \- start one or more SCSI disks
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B scsi_start
[\fI\-\-help\fR] [\fI\-\-verbose\fR] [\fI\-\-wait\fR]
\fIDEVICE\fR [\fIDEVICE\fR]*
.SH DESCRIPTION
.\" Add any additional description here
.PP
This bash shell script calls the sg_start utility on each given
\fIDEVICE\fR. The purpose is to spin up (start) each given \fIDEVICE\fR.
.SH OPTIONS
Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
.TP
\fB\-h\fR, \fB\-\-help\fR
print out the usage message then exit.
.TP
\fB\-v\fR, \fB\-\-verbose\fR
increase level or verbosity.
.TP
\fB\-w\fR, \fB\-\-wait\fR
wait for the spin up (start) on each given \fIDEVICE\fR to complete.
The default action is to do each start in immediate mode.
.SH NOTES
If a large number of disks are spun up at the same time (i.e. without
the \fI\-\-wait\fR option) then the power supply may be overloaded.
.SH EXIT STATUS
The exit status of this script is 0 when it is successful. Otherwise the
exit status is that of the last sg_start utility called. See
the sg3_utils(8) man page.
