Veeresh Koninti 0 Reputation points

Drive is enumerated in USB 2.0 speed with UAS mode using windows driver.


In the test execution, drive is remotely power-cycled and performs sequential write and read USB command execution. Test has run for close to 62 hours and after 40th power cycle drive, Security IN command is executed from the test. It fails with USBD_STATUS_CANCELLED error. This is followed by a task management function(TMIU) LunReset and IT_Nexus Reset. Windows driver has sent these TMIU's and receives Task Management Not Supported response.
