       smp_zone_lock - invoke ZONE LOCK SMP function


       smp_zone_lock    [--expected=EX]    [--fpass=FP]    [--help]   [--hex]   [--inactivity=TL]
       [--interface=PARAMS]  [--password=PA]  [--raw]  [--sa=SAS_ADDR]  [--verbose]   [--version]


       Sends  a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) ZONE LOCK 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.

       -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 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.

       -h, --help
              output the usage message then exit.

       -H, --hex
              output the response (less the CRC field) in hexadecimal.

       -i, --inactivity=TL
              sets the zone lock inactivity time limit to TL which has units of 100 milliseconds.
              The default value is 0 which implies no 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

       -P, --password=PA
              where PA is the 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.

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

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


       The SMP ZONE LOCK function was introduced in SAS-2 .
