ATA_ID(8)		 Linux Administrator's Manual		     ATA_ID(8)

NAME
       ata_id - udev callout to read product/serial number from ATA drives

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)

SEE ALSO
