Dear T10-Stds Colleagues,
The VNX block team is working on Multi-Tenancy QoS support for VNX2. In this
context, IOs may be rejected because of QoS limits, but rejected I/Os should
be retried.  How should initiators be informed of these IO rejections?
David Black suggested using CHECK CONDITION (02h) with ABORTED COMMAND,
that using a different SCSI status like BUSY or TASK SET FULL may have
undesirable side effects on some initiators.  He also suggested asking this
list for additional suggestions and input.
What would you suggest?
Best regards,
