NAME

       smp_conf_zone_man_pass - invoke CONFIGURE ZONE MANAGER PASSWORD function

SYNOPSIS

       smp_conf_zone_man_pass  [--expected=EX] [--fpass=FP] [--help] [--hex] [--interface=PARAMS]
       [--new-fpass=NF]  [--new-pass=NP]  [--password=PA]  [--raw]  [--sa=SAS_ADDR]  [--save=SAV]
       [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]

DESCRIPTION

       Sends  a SAS Management Protocol (SMP) CONFIGURE ZONE MANAGER PASSWORD function request to
       a 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.

OPTIONS

       Mandatory 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.

       -F, --fpass=FP
              where  FP is the name of a file which contains the existing password.  The password
              may be in ASCII in which case it is on one line surrounded by either single  quotes
              are  double  quotes.  Alternatively the password may be given in ASCII hexadecimal;
              either as bytes separated by space, tab, comma or newline, or as longer strings  of
              hexadecimal  bytes in which every 2 digits represents a byte. Empty lines and those
              starting with "#" are ignored.  A line starting  with  '-1'  causes  all  remaining
              bytes in the password to be filled with 0xff.

       -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.

       -N, --new-fpass=NF
              where  NF is the name of a file which contains the new password. The format of this
              file is the same as the file given in --fpass=FP.

       -n, --new-pass=NP
              where NP is the new zone manager password which may be up to 32  bytes  long.  This
              option cannot be give together with the --new-fpass=NF option. The default password
              is 32 NULLs (zero bytes) and PA is padded with NULLs to the right (to  make  it  32
              bytes long in the request).

       -P, --password=PA
              where  PA  is  the existing zone manager password which may be up to 32 bytes long.
              This option cannot be  give  together  with  the  --fpass=FP  option.  The  default
              password is 32 NULLs (zero bytes) and PA is padded with NULLs to the right (to make
              it 32 bytes long in the request).

       -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.

       -S, --save=SAV
              set the 'save' field in the SMP request. SAV may take these values: 0 for  updating
              the shadow values (default), 1 for updating the saved values, 2 for updating shadow
              values and if available the saved values, 3 for  updating  both  saved  and  shadow
              values.

       -v, --verbose
              increase the verbosity of the output. Can be used multiple times.

       -V, --version
              print the version string and then exit.

NOTES

       Hexadecimal  bytes  (or  longer  hexadecimal  strings)  should  not have a leading "0x" or
       trailing "h" decoration.

       The "well known" DISABLE password is 32 bytes of  0xff.  The  new  password  can  only  be
       DISABLED if physical presence is supported and asserted.

CONFORMING TO

       The SMP CONFIGURE ZONE MANAGER PASSWORD function was introduced in SAS-2 .
