D.2. SCSI Bus Configuration Requirements

SCSI buses must adhere to a number of configuration requirements to operate correctly. Failure to adhere to these requirements adversely affects cluster operation and resource availability.

The following are SCSI bus configuration requirements:

Use the system's configuration utility to set SCSI identification numbers and enable host bus adapter termination. When the system boots, a message is displayed describing how to start the utility. For example, the utility prompts the user to press [Ctrl]-[A], and follow the prompts to perform a particular task. To set storage enclosure and RAID controller termination, refer to the vendor documentation. Refer to Section D.3 SCSI Bus Termination and Section D.5 SCSI Identification Numbers for more information.
