NAME

       smp_rep_manufacturer - invoke REPORT MANUFACTURER INFORMATION SMP function

SYNOPSIS

       smp_rep_manufacturer   [--help]   [--hex]   [--interface=PARAMS]  [--raw]  [--sa=SAS_ADDR]
       [--verbose] [--version] [--zero] SMP_DEVICE[,N]

DESCRIPTION

       Sends a SAS Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT MANUFACTURER INFORMATION function request  to
       a  SMP  target. The SMP target is identified by the SMP_DEVICE and the 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.

       -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. Typically this is an expander.
              This option may not be needed if the SMP_DEVICE has the target's SAS address within
              it.  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.

       -z, --zero
              zero  the  Allocated  Response  Length  field  in the request. This is required for
              strict SAS-1.1 compliance. However this option should not be  given  in  SAS-2  and
              later; if it is given an abridged response may result.

CONFORMING TO

       The  SMP  REPORT  MANUFACTURER  function  was introduced in SAS-1, with small additions in
       SAS-1.1 . This function remains unaltered in SAS-2 and SPL-1.
