       smp_rep_zone_perm_tbl - invoke REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE function

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

       Sends one or more SAS Serial Management Protocol	(SMP) REPORT ZONE PER-
       MISSION	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 in-
       terface uses SMP_DEVICE to identify a HBA (an SMP initiator) and	 needs
       the  additional	,N to differentiate between HBAs if there are multiple

       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 (in-
       cluding trailing	CRC), not all the zone permission table	 rows  can  be
       returned	in one REPORT ZONE PERMISSION TABLE function response. So mul-
       tiple function calls may	be required with the --start=SS	 option	 being
       used  on	 the  latter  calls  to	 specify the next starting source zone

       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 RE-
       PORT 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

       -a, --append
	      used  in	conjunction  with --permf=FN to	append to FN if	it al-
	      ready 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 en-
	      dian nature of SCSI (and hence SMP) commands.  The  output  pro-
	      duced   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 information.

       -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  hexadeci-
	      mal  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 re-
	      ported 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 option.

       -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  re-
	      port  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  in-
	      terface 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 ei-
	      ther 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

       -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	direc-

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