Returns the vital product data (VPD) for the token-ring adapter.
The TOK_QVPD tokioctl operation returns VPD about the token-ring device. For this operation, the arg parameter points to the tok_vpd_t block to query the VPD. This structure is defined in the /usr/include/sys/tokuser.h file and contains the following fields:
|status||Returns one of the following status values:|
|l_vpd||Specifies the length of the vpd parameter.|
|vpd[TOK_VPD_LENGTH]||Contains the VPD upon return.|
The TOK_QVPD tokioctl operation can be called from the process environment only.
|EFAULT||Indicates the specified address is not valid.|
|EINVAL||Indicates a parameter is not valid.|
|ENXIO||Indicates the specified minor number is not valid.|
The TOK_QVPD operation functions with a Token-Ring High Performance Network Adapter that has been correctly configured for use on a qualified network. Consult adapter specifications for more information on configuring the adapter and network qualifications.
