Do we expect "drive not ready" or "Invalid command" check condition if drive is not spin up yet? I think I am getting timing issue and not sure what is expected behavior.

You have to send SPC trusted receive (IF-RECV) SCSI primary command with discovery payload and handle illegal requests if the drive is not an SED.

There are no vital data pages for SED specific attributes.

Is there a "SCSI" way (non vendor specific) to tell whether a device is an SED one (Self Encrypting Drive)?
I do not mean by P/N etc., but a designated field in a logpage, inquiry, etc.
