Thanks for the clarification, Rob. Please CC: the SBP-3 reflector if it was
one of the recipients of the messages.
Is "device" defined, in the context of initiator and target? My
recollection is that SAM-2 uses device in the context of "device server".
This does not seem to be what is meant when "initiator device" (or even
"target device") is used. I think another term would avoid confusion, but
in any event I need to consult a formal definition of "device" before I
comment further. Can you refer me to one?
