A couple things. As we have discussed directly, I am not a coder;
haven't coded since working with 'B' on Honeywells in the mid-80s. So
looking at 'C' code is a bit of a struggle. That said,
Given these supported names, what goes into the config file to create a
SAN without having to specify it on the command line?
And further it seems you are saying there is no support for HMN at all.
