The sjiielm program tests the SJIIELEM command on SJI compliant Jukeboxes (see libsji(1m)). This command tests the Initialize Element Status interface for a Jukebox. If a Jukebox doesn't support this feature, an appropriate error message will be printed out.
The devname argument should be any device name that can be used to reach a SJI compliant Jukebox driven by the system. Typical usage is in constructing the name that contains the SCSI Bus, the SCSI Target ID and the SCSI Lun on that target, e.g., email@example.com.
The additional optional arguments are for Jukeboxes that support the initialization of a specific range of elements. In this case, you select one of element types of drive, or slot, or inlt (Import/Export element), or mt (Media Transport, or the "Robot Arm"), and give an SJI normalized (i.e., starting from 1) address and number of elements to initialize.
