i would just like to ask have anyone tried SCSI programming? Like how do
you send SCSI Inquiry command to a SCSI device? Please tell me if someone
can share with me how it is done in a Solaris 7 platform.
any idea will be greatly appreciated.
thanks a lot.

don't know about solaris but Linux has the SCSI-generic interface.
This allows you to send arbitrary scsi command blocks to a device.
But it's allegedly not very good, esp wrt to error handling.
have a look at http://www.torque.net/sg/ which is the SCSI-generic
homepage and has a few sample programmes to look at.
See also ftp://globalfilesystem.org/pub/GFS/tools/ -> fwd, a utility
to upgrade the firmware on Seagate disks. The interesting bit about
this programme is that it has both a linux-sg backend and a Solaris
backend, which might help.
