SCSI_PROBE(9F) Kernel Functions for Drivers SCSI_PROBE(9F)


NAME


scsi_probe - utility for probing a scsi device

SYNOPSIS


#include <sys/scsi/scsi.h>


int scsi_probe(struct scsi_device *devp, int (*waitfunc);


INTERFACE LEVEL


Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI).

PARAMETERS


devp
Pointer to a scsi_device(9S) structure


waitfunc
NULL_FUNC or SLEEP_FUNC


DESCRIPTION


scsi_probe() determines whether a target/lun is present and sets up the
scsi_device structure with inquiry data.


scsi_probe() uses the SCSI Inquiry command to test if the device exists.
It can retry the Inquiry command as appropriate. If scsi_probe() is
successful, it will allocate space for the scsi_inquiry structure and
assign the address to the sd_inq member of the scsi_device(9S) structure.
scsi_probe() will then fill in this scsi_inquiry(9S) structure and return
SCSIPROBE_EXISTS. If scsi_probe() is unsuccessful, it returns
SCSIPROBE_NOMEM in spite of callback set to SLEEP_FUNC.


scsi_unprobe(9F) is used to undo the effect of scsi_probe().


If the target is a non-CCS device, SCSIPROBE_NONCCS will be returned.


waitfunc indicates what the allocator routines should do when resources
are not available; the valid values are:

NULL_FUNC
Do not wait for resources. Return SCSIPROBE_NOMEM or
SCSIPROBE_FAILURE


SLEEP_FUNC
Wait indefinitely for resources.


RETURN VALUES


scsi_probe() returns:

SCSIPROBE_BUSY
Device exists but is currently busy.


SCSIPROBE_EXISTS
Device exists and inquiry data is valid.


SCSIPROBE_FAILURE
Polled command failure.


SCSIPROBE_NOMEM
No space available for structures.


SCSIPROBE_NOMEM_CB
No space available for structures but callback
request has been queued.


SCSIPROBE_NONCCS
Device exists but inquiry data is not valid.


SCSIPROBE_NORESP
Device does not respond to an INQUIRY.


CONTEXT


scsi_probe() is normally called from the target driver's probe(9E) or
attach(9E) routine. In any case, this routine should not be called from
interrupt context, because it can sleep waiting for memory to be
allocated.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: Using scsi_probe()



switch (scsi_probe(devp, NULL_FUNC)) {
default:
case SCSIPROBE_NORESP:
case SCSIPROBE_NONCCS:
case SCSIPROBE_NOMEM:
case SCSIPROBE_FAILURE:
case SCSIPROBE_BUSY:
break;
case SCSIPROBE_EXISTS:
switch (devp->sd_inq->inq_dtype) {
case DTYPE_DIRECT:
rval = DDI_PROBE_SUCCESS;
break;
case DTYPE_RODIRECT:
rval = DDI_PROBE_SUCCESS;
break;
case DTYPE_NOTPRESENT:
default:
break;
}
}
scsi_unprobe(devp);

NOTES


A waitfunc function other than NULL_FUNC or SLEEP_FUNC is not supported
and may have unexpected results.
