HBA_GetAdapterName(3HBAAPI)		      Common Fibre Channel HBA Information Library Functions		       HBA_GetAdapterName(3HBAAPI)

NAME
HBA_GetAdapterName - retrieve the name of a specific HBA
SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lHBAAPI [ library... ] #include <hbaapi.h> HBA_STATUS HBA_GetAdapterName(HBA_UINT32 adapterindex, char *adaptername);
PARAMETERS
adapterindex the index of the adapter, between 0 and one less than the value returned by HBA_GetNumberOfAdapters(3HBAAPI). adaptername the buffer where the name of the adapter will be stored. The recommended size is 256 bytes.
DESCRIPTION
The HBA_GetAdapterName() function stores the name of the adapter specified by adapterindex in the buffer pointed to by adaptername. The caller is responsible for allocating space for the name.
RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, HBA_STATUS_OK is returned. Otherwise, an error value is returned and the content of adaptername is undefined.
ERRORS
See libhbaapi(3LIB) for general error status values.
EXAMPLES
Example 1 Return adapter name. Given an hbacount >= 0 and < total number of adapters on the system, the following example returns the adaptername for that adapter. if ((status = HBA_GetAdapterName(hbaCount, adaptername)) != HBA_STATUS_OK) { fprintf(stderr, "HBA %d name not available for " "reason %d\n", hbaCount, status); continue; }

BUGS
The HBA_GetAdapterName() function does not take a name length argument to define how large the buffer is, yet the specification does not indicate a maximum name length. Failure to pass in a large enough buffer will result in a buffer over-run, which may lead to segmentation faults or other failures. Callers should be sure to allocate a large buffer to ensure the Vendor library will not overrun during the copy. SunOS 5.11 1 Sep 2003 HBA_GetAdapterName(3HBAAPI)
