Technical Summary
 
   This specification defines a set of managed objects to configure and
   monitor Small Computer System Interface entities (SCSI entities),
   i.e.  SCSI Target Devices and SCSI Initiator Devices and SCSI Ports.

   SCSI is a client-server protocol in which application clients within
   a SCSI initiator device (client) issue service requests to logical
   units contained in a SCSI target device(server).
 
Working Group Summary
 
   This working group was chartered to work on SCSI over TCP-IP (iSCSI),
   but it was determined (with reflection in the charter) that it 
   was also the right group to work on and review the SCSI MIB.
   There was no controversy on this MIB.  There was some active
   discussion and review when the WG handled the MIB, which was 
   some time ago, due to delay in availability of a slot for a
   MIB Doctor Review.
   
 
Protocol Quality

   Bert Wijnen was the MIB Doctor for the IESG.  This MIB was also
   very carefully reviewed by the ANSI T10 Committee, which is
   responsible for the SCSI specifications.  The Area Director has
   been told of implementations.
