CH(4)                      Kernel Interfaces Manual                      CH(4)

NAME
     ch -- SCSI media changer driver

SYNOPSIS
     ch* at scsibus? target ? lun ?

DESCRIPTION
     The ch driver is essentially an ioctl(2) interface to a robot on a SCSI
     bus - a device that will change media (e.g. tapes, CD-ROMs, etc) in and
     out of drives for that media.  The chio(1) utility program uses this
     interface to manipulate such robots.

FILES
     /dev/chu       SCSI bus media changer unit u
     /usr/include/sys/chio.h

DIAGNOSTICS
     ch%d: waiting %d seconds for changer to settle...  Some changers require
     a long time to settle out, to do tape inventory, for instance.

     ch%d: offline  The changer is not responding.

     ch%d: warning, READ ELEMENT STATUS avail != count
     ch%d: could not sense element address page
     ch%d: could not sense capabilities page
