Will there be a PDO for each of the SCSI disks connected to a SCSI host based adapter? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Usually a bus driver like a PCI bus driver will be responsible for creating a PDO for each of the devices present on the bus. 

    In similar lines will there be a bus driver for the devices on the SCSI bus also? if yes, does it create a PDO for every device on the SCSI bus?

    If not, who will be enumerating the disks connected to the SCSI adapter?

  • The storport driver environment creates a PDO for each SCSI device.  The code you write for storport does not need to do it the Microsoft layers handle it.
