Synopsis

cc [ flag… ] file–lMPAPI [ library… ] 
#include <mpapi.h>
#include <mpapi-sun.h>

MP_STATUS MP_SendScsiCmd(MP_OID oid, struct uscsi_cmd *cmd);

Parameters

oid

The object ID of the logical unit path.

cmd

A uscsi_cmd structure. See uscsi(4I).

Description

The Sun_MP_SendScsiCmd() function sends a SCSI command on a specific path to a logical unit. This function is applicable only to an OID whose MP_PLUGIN_PROPERTIES driverVendor, as defined by the Multipath Management API, is equal to “Sun Microsystems”. See MP_GetPluginProperties(3MPAPI) and Multipath Management API Version 1.0.

Return Values

MP_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER

The pProps is null or specifies a memory area to which data cannot be written, or the oid has a type subfield other than MP_OBJECT_TYPE_PLUGIN.

MP_STATUS_INVALID_OBJECT_TYPE

The oid does not specify any valid object type. This is most likely to happen if an uninitialized object ID is passed to the API.

MP_STATUS_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND

The oid owner ID or object sequence number is invalid.

MP_STATUS_SUCCESS

The operation is successful.

Warnings

The uscsi command is very powerful but somewhat dangerous. See the WARNINGS section on attributes(7) before using this interface.
