SCSI_HBA_IPORT_REGISTER(9F) Kernel Functions for Drivers

NAME


scsi_hba_iport_register - register a new iport

SYNOPSIS


#include <sys/scsi/scsi.h>

int
scsi_hba_iport_register(dev_info_t *dip, char *port);

INTERFACE LEVEL


Evolving - This interface is still evolving in illumos. API and ABI
stability is not guaranteed.

PARAMETERS


dip Pointer to dev_info structure.

port The name of the iport to add.

DESCRIPTION


The scsi_hba_iport_register() function is used to create a new iport. For
more information on iports and their uses, see iport(9). This interface is
generally used then there are a fixed, static set of iports that exist in
the system. If the set of iports is dynamic or related to phys coming
online and offline, then the driver should instead consider using the
iportmap(9) abstraction.

The iport will be created as a child of the device represented by dip. The
iport will be bound to the same driver. To distinguish nodes, the driver
should use the scsi_hba_iport_unit_address(9F) function.

The name of the iport, specified by port, must be unique for a given
parent. The iport will not be created if the name is already in use.
While names generally are based on unit addresses, they may be synthetic
names.

CONTEXT


The scsi_hba_iport_register() function is generally called during the
attach(9E) entry point and may be called from user or kernel context.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, the scsi_hba_iport_register() function returns
DDI_SUCCESS. Otherwise, DDI_FAILURE is returned.
