Yes, this is correct. 'REPORT LUNS' is supported in 'Unavailable' state.

Hmm. Yes, and no.

_Actually_ this is an issue with the target, as it looks as if it
will return the above sense code while sending an 'INQUIRY' to the
device.
SPC explicitely states that the INQUIRY command should _not_ fail
for unavailable devices.
But yeah, we probably should work around this issues.
Nevertheless, please raise this issue with your array vendor.

Please try the attached patch.

Cheers,

Hannes

Subject: [PATCH] scsi_scan: continue report_lun_scan after error

When scsi_probe_and_add_lun() fails in scsi_report_lun_scan() this
does _not_ indicate that the entire target is done for.
So continue scanning for the remaining devices.
