putting SATA drives to sleep

Post by Basher52 » Thu May 26, 2005 11:00 pm

Using FC3 and i want to make some disks go to sleep while they arent in use, but the drives that are emulated as scsi wont work
the but ide works.

i use the hdparm, but i only get this:

[root@FTP ~]# /sbin/hdparm -S 240 /dev/sda
/dev/sda:
setting standby to 240 (20 minutes)
HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(setidle1) failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device


is there no way to get this to work for scsi emulated disks?

What happens if you try to put it into standby immediately (hdparm -y) ?

same stuff :(

[root@FTP ~]# hdparm -Y /dev/sdc1

/dev/sdc1:
issuing sleep command
HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(sleep) failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device


[root@FTP ~]# hdparm -y /dev/sdc1

/dev/sdc1:
issuing standby command
HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(standby) failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device

it dont seem to be any standby for drives that are emulated as SCSI :(
