SYNOPSISsmp_zone_activate [--expected=EX] [--help] [--hex] [--interface=PARAMS] [--raw] [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]
Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) ZONE ACTIVATE function request to an SMP target. The SMP target is identified by the SMP_DEVICE and the --sa=SAS_ADDR. Depending on the interface, the SAS_ADDR may be deduced from the SMP_DEVICE. The mpt interface uses SMP_DEVICE to identify a HBA (an SMP initiator) and needs the additional ,N to differentiate between HBAs if there are multiple present.
This function, if successful, will cause various zoning related shadow values (e.g. zone permission table and zone phy information) to be copied to the corresponding current values. If the saving to "saved" values option has been selected then the various zoning related shadow values will also be copied to the corresponding saved values.
OPTIONSMandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
- -E, --expected=EX
- set the 'expected expander change count' field in the SMP request. The value EX is from 0 to 65535 inclusive with 0 being the default value. When EX is greater than zero then if the value doesn't match the expander change count of the SMP target (i.e. the expander) when the request arrives then the target ignores the request and sets a function result of "invalid expander change count" in the response.
- -h, --help
- output the usage message then exit.
- -H, --hex
- output the response (less the CRC field) in hexadecimal.
- -I, --interface=PARAMS
- interface specific parameters. In this case "interface" refers to the path through the operating system to the SMP initiator. See the smp_utils man page for more information.
- -r, --raw
- send the response (less the CRC field) to stdout in binary. All error messages are sent to stderr.
- -s, --sa=SAS_ADDR
- specifies the SAS address of the SMP target device. The mpt interface needs this option and it will typically be an expander's SAS address. The SAS_ADDR is in decimal but most SAS addresses are shown in hexadecimal. To give a number in hexadecimal either prefix it with '0x' or put a trailing 'h' on it.
- -v, --verbose
- increase the verbosity of the output. Can be used multiple times.
- -V, --version
- print the version string and then exit.
CONFORMING TOThe SMP ZONE ACTIVATE function was introduced in SAS-2 .
