SBP(4)                     Kernel Interfaces Manual                     SBP(4)

NAME
     sbp -- Serial Bus Protocol 2 (SBP-2) Mass Storage Devices driver

SYNOPSIS
     sbp* at ieee1394if? euihi ? euilo ?

DESCRIPTION
     The sbp driver provides support for SBP-2 devices that attach to the
     IEEE1394 port.  It should work with all SBP-2 devices which the scsi(4)
     layer supports, for example, HDDs, CDROM drives, and DVD drives.

     Some users familiar with umass(4) might wonder why the device is not
     detached at the scsi(4) layer when the device is unplugged.  It is
     detached only if the device has not been plugged again during several bus
     resets.  This is for preventing to detach an active file system even when
     the device cannot be probed correctly for some reason after a bus reset
     or when the device is temporary disconnected because the user changes the
     bus topology.  If you want to force to detach the device, run fwctl -r
     several times.
