       smp_zone_lock - invoke ZONE LOCK SMP function

       smp_zone_lock [--expected=EX] [--fpass=FP] [--help] [--hex] [--inactiv-
       ity=TL] [--interface=PARAMS]  [--password=PA]  [--raw]  [--sa=SAS_ADDR]
       [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]

       Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) ZONE LOCK 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 iden-
       tify  a HBA (an SMP initiator) and needs the additional ,N to differen-
       tiate between HBAs if there are multiple present.

       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 password. The
              password may be in ASCII in which case it is on  one  line  sur-
              rounded 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 represents a  byte.
              Empty lines and those starting with "#" are ignored.

       -h, --help
              output the usage message then exit.

       -H, --hex
              output the response (less the CRC field) in hexadecimal.

       -i, --inactivity=TL
              sets  the  zone lock inactivity time limit to TL which has units
              of 100 milliseconds. The default value is  0  which  implies  no
              time limit.

       -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.

       -P, --password=PA
              where  PA  is  the  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.

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

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

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