Abstract

The current parallel SCSI architecture does not contain error handling protocols for handling multiple identical SCSI id's on one bus. This type of configuration will typically halt all communication on the bus until the problem is resolved by the system operator. This article proposes an error recovery strategy that will remove duplicate SCSI id's from the bus and allow normal communication to continue.
