Bit Mask Options

Use this example to aid in calculating bit-mask option
hexadecimal values. Each SCSI device is enabled by a
"1" in its corresponding bit position. As illustrated in Fig-
ure 3-1, dev_enable=05 enables driver registration of the
devices at SCSI IDs 0 and 2.

Description
Disables tagged queuing for specific targets. This disable bit mask
is entered in hexadecimal format. (See the following subsection,
"Bit Mask Options.")
Specifies the maximum number of segments in a scatter/gather list.
Specifies the maximum number of sectors in a single scatter/gather
segment.
Specifies the maximum number of tagged commands.
Specifies the maximum number of nontagged commands.
Specifies the default verify mode: 0 = No verify on writes, 1 =
Software verify, 2 = Hardware verify.
If 1 is entered, the instrumentation option is enabled. The driver
maintains internal instrumentation data for use by I/O manage-
ment applications. Instrumentation can also be enabled by the I/O
management application, so inclusion of this option is not neces-
sary.

Sample load Command

The following command is a sample load command with
no option switches (loaded from drive A):
load a:\scsi\aic7870.dsk
Slot values that already have another registered device do
not appear on the screen. Only the slots available for use
by the host adapter appear when this command is entered.
If an error message appears as you attempt to load the
driver, refer to "Troubleshooting for NetWare" found
later in this section.
The following command is a sample command loading
the aic7870.dsk driver with command line options
(loaded from drive A):
load a:\scsi\aic7870.dsk verbose=y slot=22
