The unique address of a SCSI device. SCSI IDs range from 0 to 7 for 8-bit SCSI systems, 0 to 15 for 16-bit and 0 to 31 for 32-bit systems. The SCSI adaptor is usually assigned ID 7. A device’s SCSI ID is often set by switches on the device.
- Scsi initiator
hardware A device that begins a SCSI transaction by issuing a command to another device (the SCSI target), giving it a task to perform. Typically a SCSI host adapter is the initiator but targets may also become initiators. (1999-02-10)
- Scsi interface
- Scsi reconnect
hardware The ability of a SCSI initiator to initiate new transactions before earlier ones have completed. A target or initiator can disconnect from the bus when it experiences a delay in completing a task so that another device can use the bus. It can reconnect later and complete the task. (1999-02-16)
- Scsi target
hardware A SCSI device that executes a command from a SCSI initiator to perform some task. Typically the target is a SCSI peripheral device but the host adapter can also be a target. (1999-02-10)
