Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT MANUFACTURER INFORMATION
function request to an SMP target. The SMP target is identified by the
and the SAS_ADDR
. Depending on the interface, the

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
- -h, --help
- output the usage message then exit.
- -H, --hex
- output the response (less the CRC field) in
- -I, --interface=PARAMS
- interface specific parameters. In this case
"interface" refers to the path through the operating system to
the SMP initiator. See the smp_utils man page for more information.
- -r, --raw
- send the response (less the CRC field) to stdout in binary.
All error messages are sent to stderr.
- -s, --sa=SAS_ADDR
- specifies the SAS address of the SMP target device.
Typically this is an expander. This option may not be needed if the
SMP_DEVICE has the target's SAS address within it. The
SAS_ADDR is in decimal but most SAS addresses are shown in
hexadecimal. To give a number in hexadecimal either prefix it with '0x' or
put a trailing 'h' on it.
- -v, --verbose
- increase the verbosity of the output. Can be used multiple
- -V, --version
- print the version string and then exit.
- -z, --zero
- zero the Allocated Response Length field in the request.
This is required for strict SAS-1.1 compliance. However this option should
not be given in SAS-2 and later; if it is given an abridged response may
The SMP REPORT MANUFACTURER function was introduced in SAS-1, with small
additions in SAS-1.1 . This function remains unaltered in SAS-2 and SPL-1.
