2.1.1 LPD-Q operating in expander mode

If the SEQUENCER parameter is set to zero, then the LPD-Q operates in expander mode.

In expander mode, when the LPD-Q receives a quiescent entry or exit request on the control Q-Channel, it then sends the request to all the device Q-Channels. The LPD-Q waits for all devices to accept or a denial to occur, before it generates the response to the controller.

The following figure shows the LPD-Q configured as an expander.

When a denial scenario occurs, the LPD-Q returns all device Q-Channels to the running state. The control Q-Channel does not complete until the devices return to the running state.
