    Hi All

    I am developing a SCSI port filter driver. This driver
    works fine with other SCSI ports but there are some
    problems when used with MS iSCSI software initiator.

    When we send an SRB with SCSIOP_INQUIRY request to a SCSI
    device through the port device, the port returns
    STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL (which does not explain the problem).
    When we send the same request through the PDO that was
    created for that specific SCSI device, it never returns.
    It also does not return IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH /
    SCSIOP_INQUIRY requests.

    Does the iSCSI initiator support SCSIOP_INQUIRY requests?
    Why does it fail our requests?

    Hi Maxim
    Thanks for your reply.
    Why is it a bug? The problem is that I use
    different SCSIOP commands for a lot of things, not only
    for the basic inquiry, and I could not find any other way
    to do it.

  4. For INQUIRY, use IOCTL_SCSI_GET_INQUIRY_DATA to work around this problem,
    at least on iSCSI port driver.
