       smp_conf_zone_phy_info - invoke CONFIGURE ZONE PHY INFORMATION function


       smp_conf_zone_phy_info  [--expected=EX]  [--help]  [--hex] [--interface=PARAMS] --pconf=FN
       [--raw] [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--save=SAV] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]


       Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol  (SMP)  CONFIGURE  ZONE  PHY  INFORMATION  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.

       Each zone phy configuration descriptor is 4 bytes long. The first byte is a (expander) phy
       identifier. The second byte has 3 modifiable bits: bit 5 is "inside ZPSDS persistent"; bit
       4 is "requested inside ZPSDS"; and bit 2 is "zone group persistent". The other bits in the
       second  byte are reserved and should be 0. The third byte is reserved and should be 0. The
       fourth byte is the zone group.


       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.

       -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

       -p, --pconf=FN
              FN is a file containing zone phy configuration descriptors  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.  Since each zone phy configuration descriptor is 4
              bytes long, the number of bytes in FN is expected to be a multiple of 4.

       -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

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

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


       The  expander  phys that make up a wide port (2 or more attached to phys with the same SAS
       address) must be set to the same zone phy configuration settings (other than the phy id).

       Zone phy information can be read back from an expander and  placed  in  a  file  with  the
       smp_discover_list  utility's  --zpi=FN  option. The format of that file should be suitable
       for this utility's --pconf=FN option.


       The SMP CONFIGURE ZONE PHY INFORMATION function was introduced in SAS-2 .
