       smp_conf_general - invoke CONFIGURE GENERAL SMP function


       smp_conf_general   [--connect=CO]   [--expected=EX]   [--help]  [--hex]  [--inactivity=IN]
       [--interface=PARAMS]  [--nexus=NE]   [--open=OP]   [--power=PD]   [--raw]   [--reduced=RE]
       [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--ssp=CTL] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]


       Sends  a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) CONFIGURE GENERAL 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.


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

       -c, --connect=CO
              sets  the  "update  STP maximum connect time limit" flag and the corresponding "STP
              maximum connect time limit" field to CO. Unit of CO is 100 microseconds.  A  CO  of
              zero is taken to mean no maximum connection time limit.

       -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, --inactivity=IN
              sets the "update STP bus inactivity time limit" flag and the corresponding "STP bus
              inactivity time limit" field to IN. Unit of IN is 100 microseconds. A IN of zero is
              taken to mean no bus inactivity time limit.

       -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

       -n, --nexus=NE
              sets  the  "update STP SMP I_T nexus loss time" flag and the corresponding "STP SMP
              I_T nexus loss time" field to NE. Unit of NE is one millisecond. A NE  of  zero  is
              taken  to mean a vendor specific amount of time; a NE of 65535 means the port shall
              never recognize an I_T nexus loss.

       -o, --open=OP
              sets the "update STP reject to open limit" flag and the corresponding  "STP  reject
              to open limit" field to OP. Unit of OP is 10 microseconds.

       -p, --power=PD
              sets  the  "update  power  done  timeout"  flag  and  the corresponding "power doen
              timeout" field to PD. Unit of PD is 1 second. A PD value of  0  is  interpreted  as
              don't  change  the current value. The maximum value of PD is 255 and means the time
              limit is vendor specific.

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

       -R, --reduced=RE
              sets  the "update Initial time to reduced functionality" flag and the corresponding
              "Initial  time  to  reduced  functionality"  field  to  RE.   Unit  of  RE  is  100
              milliseconds.  The  maximum  permitted  RE  value  is 255 which corresponds to 25.5

       -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

       -S, --ssp=CTL
              sets the "update SSP time limit" flag and the corresponding  "SSP  maximum  connect
              time  limit" field to CTL. Unit of CTL is 100 microseconds.  A CTL of zero is taken
              to meanthat there is no SSP connect time limit.

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

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


       The SMP CONFIGURE GENERAL function was introduced in SAS-2 .
