       smp_conf_zone_man_pass  -  invoke CONFIGURE ZONE MANAGER PASSWORD func-

       smp_conf_zone_man_pass [--expected=EX]  [--fpass=FP]  [--help]  [--hex]
       [--interface=PARAMS]  [--new-fpass=NF]  [--new-pass=NP] [--password=PA]
       [--raw]   [--sa=SAS_ADDR]    [--save=SAV]    [--verbose]    [--version]

       Sends  a  SAS  Serial  Management Protocol (SMP) CONFIGURE ZONE MANAGER
       PASSWORD function request to an SMP target. The SMP target  is  identi-
       fied  by  the SMP_DEVICE and the --sa=SAS_ADDR. Depending on the inter-
       face, the SAS_ADDR may be deduced from the SMP_DEVICE. The  mpt  inter-
       face uses SMP_DEVICE to identify a HBA (an SMP initiator) and needs the
       additional ,N to differentiate  between  HBAs  if  there  are  multiple

       Mandatory  arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as

       -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 existing pass-
              word.   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 rep-
              resents a byte. Empty lines and  those  starting  with  "#"  are
              ignored.   A  line starting with '-1' causes all remaining bytes
              in the password to be filled with 0xff.

       -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.

       -N, --new-fpass=NF
              where NF is the name of a file which contains the new  password.
              The  format  of  this  file  is  the  same  as the file given in

       -n, --new-pass=NP
              where NP is the new zone manager password which may be up to  32
              bytes  long.  This  option  cannot  be  give  together  with the
              --new-fpass=NF 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).

       -P, --password=PA
              where PA is the existing 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  hexa-
              decimal either prefix it with '0x' or put a trailing 'h' on it.

       -S, --save=SAV
              set the 'save' field in the SMP request. SAV may take these val-
              ues: 0 for updating the shadow values (default), 1 for  updating
              the  saved values, 2 for updating shadow values and if available
              the saved values, 3 for updating both saved and shadow values.

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

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

       See attributes(7) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |Availability   | system/storage/smp_utils |
       |Stability      | Uncommitted              |

       Hexadecimal  bytes  (or  longer  hexadecimal strings) should not have a
       leading "0x" or trailing "h" decoration.

       The "well known" DISABLE password is 32 bytes of 0xff. The new password
       can only be DISABLED if physical presence is supported and asserted.
