ScsiPortNotification (NotificationType = NextLuRequest) routine

The ScsiPortNotification routine informs the operating system-specific port driver of certain events, such as when a miniport driver completes a request or is ready to start another SRB, as well as when the HBA indicates certain SCSI error conditions that occurred during an operation.


VOID ScsiPortNotification(
  _In_      SCSI_NOTIFICATION_TYPE NotificationType,
  _In_      PVOID HwDeviceExtension,
  _In_opt_   PathId,
  _In_opt_   TargetId,
  _In_opt_   Lun


NotificationType [in]

Specifies the type of notification. A NotificationType of NextLuRequest indicates that the HBA is ready for another request for the specified logical unit. If this value is set, ScsiPortNotification requires three additional parameters: (1) the path ID, (2) the target ID, and (3) the logical unit number. This value should be used only if the HBA can queue multiple requests and support auto-request sense or tagged queuing..

HwDeviceExtension [in]

Pointer to the hardware device extension. This is a per-HBA storage area that the port driver allocates and initializes on behalf of the miniport driver. Miniport drivers usually store HBA-specific information in this extension, such as the state of the HBA and the HBA's mapped access ranges. This area is available to the miniport driver in the DeviceExtension->HwDeviceExtension member of the HBA's device object immediately after the miniport driver calls ScsiPortInitialize. The port driver frees this memory when it removes the device.

PathId [in, optional]

Indicates the SCSI port or bus for the request. This parameter is optional.

TargetId [in, optional]

Indicates the target controller or device on the bus. This parameter is optional.

Lun [in, optional]

Indicates the logical unit number of the device. This parameter is optional.

Return value
