Information technology Small Computer System Interface [SCSI] Part 322: SCSI Block Commands - 2 [SBC-2]
|Publication Date:||1 February 2007|
|ICS Code (Interface and interconnection equipment):||35.200|
This part of ISO/IEC 14776 defines the command set extensions to facilitate operation of SCSI direct-access block devices. The clauses of this standard, implemented in conjunction with the applicable clauses of SPC-3, fully specify the standard command set for SCSI direct-access block devices.
The objective of this standard is to
a) permit an application client to communicate over a SCSI service delivery subsystem with a logical unit that declares itself to be a direct-access block device in the PERIPHERAL DEVICE TYPE field of the standard INQUIRY data (see SPC-3) and
b) define commands unique to the direct-access block device type.
The set of SCSI standards specifies the interfaces, functions and operations necessary to ensure interoperability between conforming SCSI implementations. This standard is a functional description. Conforming implementations may employ any design technique that does not violate interoperability.
