* From the T10 Reflector (t10 at, posted by:

I have a question on "Preempting Reservation"  SPC-2 Last paragraph of
Section page 35.
It states the following:

"A PERSISTENT RESERVE OUT specifying a PREEMPT service action with the
value equal to the reservation key is not an error. In that case the
device server shall establish the new reservation."

What should be done to the registration of other initiators that matches
the "SERVICE ACTION RESERVATION KEY"?  Should they be removed and a Unit
attention be established?  I would assume the answer is YES except for
the initiator that issued this PREEMPT request.

Any comments?
