Subject: SCSI-3 Prevent/Allow Media removal.
The SSC/SMC WG 11/14 minutes contained:
> 4.4 - Prevent/Allow Media removal command.
> Should an Unload command be allowed when the prevent condition
> exists? The current Prevent/Allow Media Removal command
> wording is unclear on this point.
The Feb. '95 SBC document states, in the last sentence of section
6.1.4 (Prevent Allow Medium Removal):
> While a prevention of medium removal condition is in effect
> the logical unit shall inhibit mechanisms that normally allow
> removal of the medium by both an operator and by an attached
> medium changer.
What am I missing? Whether the command is LOAD UNLOAD, STOP/START
UNIT or CHANGE or MOVE MEDIUM, it still seems to me that the "unit
shall inhibit mechanisms" statement is quite clear, - - unless
there's something that I don't understand or know about???
I would appreciate it if someone would expand on this issue and
explain the uncertainty.
