Howdy All,

To the FC tape and media changer vendors:

The FC-Tape profile currently states maximum
FCP_SNS_LEN (number of bytes) <= 255 for FC tape and
media changer devices.
While this value will work it would be nice to have a smaller value
(if possible). PLDA stated the FCP_SNS_LEN max value to be <= 96
for SCSI disk targets. So the question is will this also work for FC
tape and media changer devices?
