       smp_zone_activate - invoke ZONE ACTIVATE SMP function

       smp_zone_activate [--expected=EX] [--help] [--hex] [--interface=PARAMS]
       [--raw] [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]

       Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol  (SMP)  ZONE  ACTIVATE  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  addi-
       tional ,N to differentiate between HBAs if there are multiple present.

       This  function, if successful, will cause various zoning related shadow
       values (e.g. zone permission table and  zone  phy  information)  to  be
       copied  to  the  corresponding current values. If the saving to "saved"
       values option has been selected then the various zoning related  shadow
       values will also be copied to the corresponding saved values.

       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.

       -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.

       -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.

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

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

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