NAME
HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo, HBA_GetRNIDMgmtInfo, HBA_SendRNID, HBA_SendRNIDV2 - access Fibre Channel Request Node Identification Data (RNID) SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lHBAAPI [ library... ] #include <hbaapi.h> HBA_STATUS HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo(HBA_HANDLE handle, HBA_MGMTINFO *pInfo); HBA_STATUS HBA_GetRNIDMgmtInfo(HBA_HANDLE handle, HBA_MGMTINFO *pInfo); HBA_STATUS HBA_SendRNID(HBA_HANDLE handle, HBA_WWN wwn, HBA_WWNTYPE wwntype, void *pRspBuffer, HBA_UINT32 *RspBufferSize); HBA_STATUS HBA_SendRNIDV2(HBA_HANDLE handle, HBA_WWN hbaPortWWN, HBA_WWN destWWN, HBA_UINT32 destFCID, HBA_UINT32 NodeIdDataFormat, void *pRspBuffer, HBA_UINT32 *RspBufferSize); PARAMETERS
handle an open handle returned from HBA_OpenAdapter(3HBAAPI) pInfo HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo() a pointer to a HBA_MGMTINFO structure containing the new RNID HBA_GetRNIDMgmtInfo() a pointer to a HBA_MGMTINFO structure into which the RNID is copied wwn the discovered port WWN to which the request is sent wwntype deprecated hbaPortWWN the Port WWN of the local HBA through which to send the ELS destWWN the Port WWN of the remote Target to which the ELS is sent destFCID If destFCID is non-zero, destFCID is the address identifier of the remote target to which the ELS is sent. If destFCID is 0, destFCID is ignored. NodeIdDataFormat the Node Identification Data Fromat value as defined in FC-FS pRspBuffer A pointer to a buffer into which the RNID response is copied . The data will be in Big Endian format. RspBufferSize A pointer to the size of the buffer. On completion it will contain the size of the actual response payload copied into the buffer. DESCRIPTION
These functions access Fibre Channel Request Node Identification Data (RNID) as defined in the T11 specification FC-FS. The HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo() function sets the RNID returned from by HBA. The HBA_GetRNIDMgmtInfo() function retrieves the stored RNID from the HBA. The HBA_SendRNID() function sends an RNID request to a discovered port. The Node Identification Data format is always set to 0xDF for Gen- eral Topology Discovery Format as defined in the T11 specification FC-FS. The HBA_SendRNIDV2() function sends an RNID request to a discovered port requesting a specified Node Identification Data format. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo() returns HBA_STATUS_OK and sets the RNID. Upon successful completion, HBA_GetRNIDMgmtInfo() returns HBA_STATUS_OK. Otherwise, an error value is returned and the content of pInfo is undefined. Upon successful completion, HBA_SendRNID() returns HBA_STATUS_OK. Otherwise, an error value is returned and the content of pRspBuffer is undefined. The HBA_SendRNIDV2() returns the following values: HBA_STATUS_OK The RNID ELS has been successfully returned. HBA_STATUS_ERROR_ELS_REJECT The RNID ELS was rejected by the HBA Port. HBA_STATUS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_WWN The value of hbaPortWWN is not a valid port WWN on the specified HBA. HBA_STATUS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_FCID The destWWN/destFCID pair conflicts with a discovered Port Name/address identifier pair known by the HBA. HBA_STATUS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_FCID The N_Port WWN in the RNID response does not match destWWN. HBA_STATUS_ERROR An error occurred. ERRORS

HBA_OpenAdapter(3HBAAPI), libhbaapi(3LIB), attributes(5) T11 FC-MI Specification BUGS
The HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo() and HBA_GetRNIDMgmtInfo() functions do not take a portindex to define to which port of a multi-ported HBA the command should apply. The behavior on multi-ported HBAs is vendor-specific and can result in all ports being set to the same value. The HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo() and HBA_GetRNIDMgmtInfo() functions allow only 0xDF (General Topology Discovery Format). The HBA_SendRNID() function does not take a portindex to define through which port of a multi-ported HBA to send the command. The behavior on multi-ported HBAs is vendor-specific and can result in the command being sent through the first port. The HBA_SendRNID() function does not take an argument to specify the Node Identification Data Format. It always assumes that 0xDF (General Topology Discovery Format) is desired. SNIA version 2 defines HBA_SendRNIDV2() to take a Port WWN and a Node Data Format. This fixes the bugs with multi-ported HBAs of allowing only0xDF (General Topology Discovery Format) in HBA_SendRNID(). SunOS 5.11 1 Sep 2003 HBA_SetRNIDMgmtInfo(3HBAAPI)
