SUMMARY: scanner SCSI problem

From: Robin Sinclair (

Original question:
I have a Howtek D4000 scanner connected via SCSI to an IPX running Solaris 2.4
and each time the station boots there are SCSI errors like:

        WARNING: /sbus@1,f8000000/esp@0,8000000 (esp0)
        Target 4 didn't disconnect after sending COMMAND COMPLETE

The scanner does not support SCSI disconnect commands. Either get a scanner
which does, or disable SCSI disconnects in the kernel by adding a line to
/etc/system ( however this could have big performance penalties) :

        set scsi_options & ~0x8

Muchas gracias to (Kevin Sheehan ) for the answer
and to (George Goffe) for responding also
