NT detects only eight logical units on SCSI device


Modern SCSI controllers support many logical units (LUs). By default NT will
only detect the first eight LUs on a scsi controller unless the parameter value
DevicenLargeLuns has been set for the driver of
the scsi card where n is the scsi bus number. For the Adapter2940 which
Dell widely uses:


Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\aic78xx\Parameters
Name:
Device0LargeLuns bus 0
Name: Device1LargeLuns bus 1
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1
enable

After setting DeviceLargeLuns for the appropriate bus, the SCSI will detect
whatever the number of LUs supported.
