SMHBA.CONF(4) File Formats and Configurations SMHBA.CONF(4)


NAME


smhba.conf - configuration file for the SMHBAAPI library

DESCRIPTION


The /etc/smhba.conf file is used to specify the Vendor-Specific Libraries
that are installed on the system. This file is used by the Common Library
to load the individual VSLs when HBA_LoadLibrary(3HBAAPI) is called. If
changes are made to the file while the library is in use, the library
should be freed and reloaded. A version 1 VSL is compatible only with a
version 1 Common Library. A version 2 VSL is compatible with both a
version 1 and a version 2 Common Library.


Each VSL entry is a single line of the form:

"name" "library path"


where:

name
is the description of library. The library name should be
prepended with the domain of the manufacturer of the
library.


library path
is the absolute path to the shared object library file.


EXAMPLES


Example 1: Contents of /etc/smhba.conf

# This file contains names and references to SM-HBA libraries
#
# Format:
#
# <library name> <library pathname>
#
# The library name should be prepended with the domain of
# the manufacturer or driver author.

NOTES


The SMHBAAPI library is provided in both 32-and 64-bit versions, but only
one configuration file is specified. As a result, both 32- and 64-bit VSL
libraries must be specified within the same file. When using the 32-bit
Common Library, the 64-bit VSLs will fail to load. When using the 64-bit
Common Library, the 32-bit VSLs will fail to load. These failures are
silently ignored by the Common Library during normal usage, but can
result in warning messages when running client applications in a
debugger.
