Send arbitrary SCSI command
Posted on 1997-03-07
we need to be able to send an arbitrary SCSI command to any device attached to NT 4.0 Server through a SCSI miniport driver. Using DOS/ASPI will not work, because:
Background: Using Seagate Barracuda Fibre Channel drives connected to an Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel host adapter. The Emulex works through a SCSI miniport driver, but no DOS ASPI drivers are available for it. We wish to enable the write cache on the Seagate drives, which can be done through a SCSI command (SCSI-3 sits "atop" Fibre Channel).
If you have written or know of an application that can send SCSI commands through a SCSI miniport driver (or rather, the Win32 API), we'd like to hear from you.
