Descripton and impact of SCSI device,target,bus,host reset

Currently I am analyzing a FC issue where there were device,target,bus,host SCSI resets. Can anyone enlighten me what each reset does and what impact it has? We are using redundancy where possible and need to know what protection we have in case of purple outtages. Are there any good docs available? Many thanks in advance!

For power outages?

I think the best solution for that is vitalization because if one system goes down the virtual system will still continue on a different box.

But as far as hard drive resets, I don't think that itself should cause any data lose though you shouldn't be having that all the time and it can slow the system down, big time. If the system crashes then you could lose some Data.

Thanks for posting and thanks all.

Be real, be sober.
