Description Andrew 2019-03-08 14:05:26 UTC
I do not know if it is the intended behavior from now on, but after the latest upgrade (from 1.42 to 1.44), sg3_utils commands do not take for granted the "/dev" prefix any longer in the device name parameter. This broke some scripts of ours which leverage the sg_persist(8) command.

Here is an example transcript:

# sg_persist -V
version: 0.52 20160201
# sg_persist -i -s da0
  FREEBSD   CTLDISK           0001
  Peripheral device type: disk
  PR generation=0x9
      All target ports bit clear
      Relative port address: 0x6
      << Reservation holder >>
      scope: LU_SCOPE,  type: Write Exclusive
      Transport Id of initiator:
        iSCSI world wide unique port id: iqn.1994-09.org.freebsd:xxx.xxx.xxx,i,0x80118193bc0b

# sg_persist -V
version: 0.66 20180615
# sg_persist -i -s da0
scsi_pt_open_flags: unable to stat(da0): No such file or directory
sg_persist: error opening file (ro): da0: No such file or directory

I examined the changelog (https://github.com/hreinecke/sg3_utils/blob/master/ChangeLog), but I didn't find anything about this.
