Piggyback status gripe
Over the last several weeks, I have found myself testing against some version 8 initiators that do not understand that a good status can be carried piggyback fashion in the DATA-IN PDU, as indicated by the 'S' bit. This makes life very difficult for a target, and takes a while to analyse the situation to find out what is wrong. Can I draw initiator writers (especially those in the Windows arena) attention to the text in 3.7 of both draft 8 and draft 9 and the equivalent text in 10.7 of draft 10. Initiators MUST cope with both cases of either a DATA-IN with the 'S' bit set, or a separate SCSI Response PDU, it's not up to the target to telepathically cope with which behaviour the initiator expects. For performance sake, most targets will piggyback the status in the DATA-IN PDU and this hangs a couple of initiators. Could the participants of next weeks Plugfest actively check for this compliance ? Regards, Mark.
