stmfInitProxyDoor - establish the door server with the STMF proxy service
cc [ flag... ] file... -lstmf [ library... ] #include <libstmf.h> int stmfInitProxyDoor(int *hdl, int fd);
the door file descriptor for the established door server
The stmfInitProxyDoor() function establishes the door server with the STMF proxy service. The STMF proxy service is responsible for sending SCSI commands to the peer node on behalf of a logical unit in the Standby asymmetric logical unit access (ALUA) state. stmfInitProxyDoor () should be called once a peer-to-peer communication channel between the two participating ALUA nodes has been established by the caller.
The door_call(3C) from the STMF proxy service to the door server will fill in the door_arg_t structure as follows:
door_arg_t arg; uint32_t result; arg.data_ptr = buf; arg.data_size = size; arg.desc_ptr = NULL; arg.desc_num = 0; arg.rbuf = (char *)&result arg.rsize = sizeof (result);
The tuple <data_ptr, data_size> is expected to arrive at the peer node STMF proxy service via stmfPostProxyMsg().
The door server is expected to complete the door call with these arguments to door_return(3C):
uint32_t result; (void) door_return((char *)&result, sizeof(result), NULL, 0);
where result is of type uint32_t and set to 0 on success, non-zero on failure.
Non-zero values are logged as errors without further action. No file descriptors will be exchanged by the door call or return.
The following values are returned:
A previous door has already been established.
The API call was successful.
