       service_provider.conf - service provider configuration file


       service_provider.conf contains information about the device type that the service provider
       supports. This information includes the pathname of  the  service  provider  library,  the
       library version and other library characteristics that are required by the system adminis-
       trative command, datadm(1M). datadm(1M) puts this information in the DAT  static  register
       file, dat.conf(4).

       The  datadm  program  enumerates each device entry into a list of interface adapters, that
       is, interfaces to external network that are available to uDAPL consumers. This new list of
       interface  adapters  is appended to other service providers' information in the DAT static
       registry, dat.conf. You can do this is you invoke the datadm program with  the  -a  option
       and the pathname of the service_provider.conf file.

       Each entry in the service_provider.conf is a single line of 7 fields.

       The following shows the order of the fields in a service_provider.conf entry:

	 "driver_name" "API_version" "threadsafe_library | \
	 "default_version | nondefault_version" \
	 "service_provider_version" "service_provider_instance_data"\

       The fields are defined as follows:


	   Specifies  a  driver  name  in  the	format	of  driver_name=value  pair, for example,


	   Specifies the API version of the service provide library: For example,  "u"major.minor
	   is u1.2.

       threadsafe_library | nonthreadsafe_librar

	   Specifies a threadsafe or non-threadsafe library.

       default_version | nondefault_version

	   Specifies  a  default  or non-default version of library. A service provider can offer
	   several versions of the library. If so, one version is designated as default with  the
	   rest as nondefault.


	   Specifies the pathname of the library image.


	   Specifies  the  version  of	the  service provider. By convention, specify the company
	   stock symbol as the service provider, followed by major and minor version numbers, for
	   example, SUNW1.0.


	   Specifies the service provider instance data.

       Example 1 Using a Logical Device Name

       The following example service_provider.conf entry uses a logical device name:

	 # Sample service_provider.conf entry showing an uDAPL 1.2 service
	 # provider, udapl_tavor.so.1 supporting a device with a driver named
	 # tavor
	 driver_name=tavor u1.2 nonthreadsafe default udapl_tavor.so.1 \
	     SUNW.1.0 ""

       Example 2 Using a Physical Device Name

       The following example service_provider.conf uses a physical device name:

	 # Sample service_provider.conf entry showing an uDAPL 1.2
	 # service provider, udapl_tavor.so.1 supporting a device named
	 # pci15b3,5a44 that can be located under /devices
	 pci15b3,5a44 u1.2 nonthreadsafe default \
	     /usr/lib/tavor/udapl_tavor.so.1 SUNWudaplt1.0 ""

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |Evolving			   |
