bd_s390_zfcp_scsi_offline ()

gboolean
bd_s390_zfcp_scsi_offline (const gchar *devno,
                           const gchar *wwpn,
                           const gchar *lun,
                           GError **error);

Parameters

error

place to store error (if any).

[out]

Returns

whether a LUN was successfully removed from associated WWPN

This function looks through /proc/scsi/scsi and manually removes LUNs from associated WWPNs. zFCP devices are SCSI devices accessible over FCP protocol. In z/OS the IODF (I/O definition file) contains basic information about the I/O config, but WWPN and LUN configuration is done at the OS level, hence this function becomes necessary when switching the device offline. This particular sequence of actions is for some reason unnecessary when switching the device online. Chalk it up to s390x being s390x.

                      const gchar *lun,
                      GError **error);

Parameters

devno

zfcp device number

 

wwpn

zfcp WWPN (World Wide Port Number)

 

lun

zfcp LUN (Logical Unit Number)

 

error

place to store error (if any).

[out]

Returns

whether a zfcp device was successfully switched offline

bd_s390_is_tech_avail ()

gboolean
bd_s390_is_tech_avail (BDS390Tech tech,
