1. Is it safe to connect/disconnect a SCSI cable from
a powered-up device (either host adapter or disk/tape
2. Is it safe to power up/down an external SCSI device
while the host adapter is powered?
3. Is the SCSI command set 'remotable'? Could you, in
theory, write a virtual SCSI port driver that would chuck
the SCSI commands across a network to another machine
which would then put them on a real SCSI bus, and return
the device's response across the net?
(No 3 is a sick twisted plan for accessing my SCSI devices
from VMS even though I don't have a SCSI adapter in the VAX.
I do have one in my PC, and writing a SCSI port driver
for VMS shouldn't be too hard. It would certainly be easier
than implementing the rmt protocol.)
