All, 

 

In Section 6.5, the last sentence states "Expander devices shall not
forward OOB signals. An expander device shall run the link reset
sequence independently on each physical link." Does this mean that if an
initiator issues a COMRESET/COMINIT via OOB, that the expander will
reset the link, and then reissue the OOB to each Phy connected to the
expander, or reset the link and then nothing more, and SMP PHY CONTROL
is use to reset expander connected Phys

 

Thanks

 

Kevin
