At least one SAM-2 LB commenter has expressed the concern
that the first sentences in each of the dependent logical
unit address methods clauses say something that:
a) Is said elsewhere in SCSI, and
b) Has no sensible relationship to the logical unit
I agree with the comments and am about to respond to them
by removing the sentences. Only a well reasoned description
of why I have lost my marbles will save these sentences.
The sentences on the chopping block (and clause identifiers
for them) are as follows:
4.12.4 Logical unit addressing method
All SCSI commands are allowed when the logical unit address
method is selected, however logical units are only required
to support mandatory SCSI commands.
4.12.5 Peripheral device addressing method
All SCSI commands are allowed when the peripheral device
address method is selected, however peripheral devices are
only required to support mandatory SCSI commands.
4.12.6 Flat Space Addressing Method
All SCSI commands are allowed when the flat space addressing
method is used, however, the addressed logical unit is not
required to support all SCSI commands.
Talk fast, or they are history.
