IT_TPG_CREATE(3ISCSIT) iSCSI Management Library Functions


NAME


it_tpg_create, it_tpg_delete, it_tpg_free - create and delete
iSCSI target portal groups

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -liscsit [ library... ]
#include <libiscsit.h>

int it_tpg_create(it_config_t *cfg, it_tpg_t **tpg,
char *tpg_name, char *portal_ip_port);


int it_tpg_delete(it_config_t *cfg, it_tpg_t *tpg,
boolean_t force););


void it_tpg_free(it_tpg_t *tpg);


PARAMETERS


cfg
a pointer t the iSCSI configuration structure


tpg
a pointer to the it_tpg_t structure representing the
target portal group


tpg_name
an identifier for the target portal group


portal_ip_port
a string containing an appropriately formatted IP
address:port. Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are
permitted. This value becomes the first portal in the
target portal group. Applications can add additional
values using it_portal_create(3ISCSIT) before
committing the target portal group. IPv6 addresses
should be enclosed in square brackets ('[', ']').


force
boolean value indicating if the target portal group
should be removed even if it is associated with one or
more targets. If not B_TRUE, the operation will fail if
the target product group is associated with a target.


DESCRIPTION


The it_tpg_create() function allocates and creates an it_tpg_t structure
representing a new iSCSI target portal group. The new it_tpg_t structure
is added to the global tpg list (cfg_tgt_list) in the it_config_t
structure.


The it_tpg_delete() function deletes the target portal group represented
by tpg, where tpg is an existing it_tpg_t structure within the global
configuration cfg.


The it_tpg_free() function deallocates resources associated with an
it_tpg_t structure. If tpg->next is not NULL, this function frees all
members of the list.


Configuration changes as a result of these functions are not instantiated
until the modified configuration is committed by calling
it_config_commit(3ISCSIT).

RETURN VALUES


The it_tpg_create() and it_tpg_delete() functions return 0 on success and
an error value on failure.

ERRORS


The it_tpg_create() and it_tpg_delete() functions will fail if:

EBUSY
The portal group is associated with one or more targets.


EEXIST
The portal was already configured for another portal group
associated with this target.


EINVAL
A parameter is invalid.


ENOMEM
Resources could not be allocated.
