Hi all,

Due to the concerns with TapeAlert error flags in multi-initiator
environments, here is a suggestion for improved wording of the TapeAlert log
page definition to cover this case.

The suggested change is in the clearing criteria for TapeAlert flags,
changing
  "When the TapeAlert Log page is read"
to  
  "When the TapeAlert Log page is read - note that 
   in multi-initiator environments the TapeAlert flags 
   should be cleared on read on a per-initiator basis 
   such that set flags are still visible to other 
   initiators"

Comments?
