* From the T10 Reflector (t10 at, posted by:
* Mona <monika.talwar at>
The section 9.3.3 of SAS-2(Rev 4), it is stated that:
"The STP transport layer uses the transport layer state machines defined in
SATA, modified to communicate with the port layer rather than directly with
the link layer. These modifications are not described in this standard."
Could anybody please suggest where I can find the document containing the
list of the required modifications?
Thanks & Regards
