Abstract : An improved method of having an SCSI controller provide a logical connection between a plurality of host processors using a single SCSI initiator. The controller contains removable host adapters for connection to any type of host processor interface. When a host processor requests status information of a target device, that status information is passed to the requesting processor and subsequently stored in the controller and made available to all other host processors.
