SYNOPSIS

ata_id [--export] blockdevice

DESCRIPTION

ata_id is normally called from a udev rule, to provide udev with a unique string and additional information (uuid, label) for an ATA drive. Udev can use this information to create symlinks in /dev/disk/by-id and /dev/disk/by-label to the real device node.

USAGE

ata_id opens the blockdevice node specified at the commandline and prints the information chosen by the options.

OPTIONS

The following commandline switches are supported to specify what ata_id should print:
--export
  print all values (instead of only the id)
