I asked this question last week but have seen
no replies. That leads me to believe I didn't
ask the question correctly so I'm trying again.
SAM-2, Rev 22, 24 Jan. 2002, Section 7.1, last paragraph
"The requirements for task set management only apply to a
task after it has been entered into a task set. A task
shall be entered into a task set unless a condition exists
that causes that task to be completed with a status of
BUSY, RESERVATION CONFLICT, TASK SET FULL, or ACA ACTIVE."
SPC-3, Rev 6, 5 April 2002, Section 5.5.1, page 29, last paragraph
"An unlinked command shall be checked for reservation
conflicts before the task containing that command enters
the enabled task state."
My question is this.
Is a task in the dormant state considered to be entered
into the task set?
My reading of the SAM-2 Task Set management rules leads me
to believe that it is which leads me to believe that I must
perform reservation checking twice during the lifetime of
a task. Once before it's entered into the dormant state
and secondly before a dormant task enters the enabled
