SubjectRe: Ideas for v2.1
Date
Hi,
Personally, it is MUCH preferred to have the name more closely match the
hardware configuration, ESPECIALLY for SCSI devices, IMO! If I want the
disk to be shuffled, then I prefer having to move a jumper or switch
setting! (Until you have to support lots of different physical system
configurations, you may not fully appreciate the assist this approach
gives). Don't forget, for each SCSI host adaptor, you can have 8
controllers, each of which can have 8 LUNs. Therefore a single host
adapter can support 64 drives (done right, which most ain't, but that's
a different issue).
