       smp_rep_zone_perm_tbl - invoke REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE function


       smp_rep_zone_perm_tbl   [--append]   [--bits=COL]  [--help]  [--hex]  [--interface=PARAMS]
       [--multiple] [--nocomma] [--num=MD]  [--permf=FN]  [--raw]  [--report=RT]  [--sa=SAS_ADDR]
       [--start=SS] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]


       Sends  one  or  more  SAS  Serial  Management  Protocol (SMP) REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE
       function requests 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  SMP  function  returns  zone permission descriptors which represent rows of the zone
       permission table. There is a row for each source zone group starting at zone group  0  and
       finishing  at  zone group 127 or zone group 255.  Due to the SMP response size restriction
       of 1028 bytes (including trailing CRC), not all the zone  permission  table  rows  can  be
       returned in one REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE function response. So multiple function calls
       may be required with the --start=SS option being used on the latter calls to  specify  the
       next starting source zone group.

       The  --multiple  option will send multiple REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE requests until all
       source zone groups (or starting from --start=SS) are  output.  This  option  is  the  most
       convenient way to output the whole zone permission table. In the absence of the --multiple
       option only one REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE request is sent.

       The output of this utility is designed to be useful as input to the smp_conf_zone_perm_tbl
       utility.  In  other  words these utilities can be used to save and restore zone permission
       table settings.


       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.

       -a, --append
              used in conjunction with --permf=FN to append to FN if it  already  exists.  If  FN
              does not exist then it is created.

       -B, --bits=COL
              This  is  an  alternate zone permission table represention showing single bits with
              the origin (i.e. ZP[0,0]) in the top left. The output  is  a  bit  array  with  COL
              columns  and  up  to  COL  rows.  This output resembles the example zone permission
              tables shown in the SAS draft documents (at  The  default  (i.e.  without
              this  option)  is output that reflects the byte oriented, big endian nature of SCSI
              (and hence SMP) commands. The output produced by this option  is  not  suitable  as
              input for the smp_conf_zone_perm_tbl utility.

       -f, --start=SS
              starting (first and lowest numbered) source zone group (default: zone group 0).

       -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

       -m, --multiple
              starting  at  source  zone  group  0 (or SS), multiple REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE
              requests are issued until the last (127th and  255th)  source  zone  descriptor  is
              output. This option should not be given together with the --num=MD option.

       -N, --nocomma
              output  each  zone  group  descriptor  as  a long string of hexadecimal digits, two
              digits per byte. Default action is to output a comma separated list of  hexadecimal
              ASCII bytes for each zone group descriptor.

       -n, --num=MD
              where  MD  is  the  maximum  number  of descriptors that can be reported in the one
              response. The default value is 63. 63 is the maximum number of  "128  zone  groups"
              sized  descriptors that can fit in one response. If the expander is using "256 zone
              groups" sized descriptors then a maximum of 31 descriptors can fit in one response.
              This option should not be given together with the --multiple option.

       -P, --permf=FN
              FN  is a file to write the zone permission descriptors to. The default action is to
              output the zone permissions descriptors to stdout. Note that the whole  permissions
              table  may  not fit in one response. If the FN exists then it is truncated prior to
              the write unless --append is given. To append to the existing FN add  the  --append

       -r, --raw
              send  the response (less the CRC field) to stdout in binary. All error messages are
              sent to stderr.

       -R, --report=RT
              set the 'report type' field in the SMP request. RT may take  these  values:  0  for
              report current values (default); 1 for report the shadow values; 2 for report saved
              values; 3 for report default values.

       -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.

       -f, --start=SS
              See entry above, listed in order by its short option letter (i.e.  -f).

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

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


       When  the  --permf=FN  is  given  and  SS  is  greater  than  zero then a line of the form
       "--start=SS" is written to FN just prior to the first row of zone permissions.

       There are some examples of the --permf=FN format in the examples directory.


       The SMP REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE function was introduced in SAS-2 .
