NCITS Announces the Public Comment Period for X3.305:199x, SCSI-3 Enclosure
Services (SES) Command Set 

Washington D.C., February 1997 - NCITS (National Committee for Information
Technology Standards) is announcing the public comment period for
X3.305:199x. Development of this draft standard is being done in Technical
Committee T10, Lowel Level Interface. 

The public review extends from February 28, 1997 to April 29, 1997. 

The SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) command set documents the commands, and
parameters necessary to manage and sense the state of the power supplies,
cooling devices, displays, indicators, individual drives, and other
non-SCSI elements installed in an enclosure. The command set uses the SCSI
configuration information for the enclosure and to set and sense standard
bits for each type of element that may be installed in the enclosure.
