Among other things, we don't have spaces, nor do we have CR.Don't you think this would look a little strange though: X#NodeArchitecture Use: LO, Declarative Senders: Initiator and Target Scope: SW X#NodeArchitecture=<iSCSI-local-name-value> The reason I think it looks strange is that what is being defined is not an iSCSI name. The "list-of-values" sounds more generic, especially if you compare the definitions in 3720. Granted, "list-of-values" and "iSCSI-local-name-value" are just tags to describe string rules, but it looks odd.
Then let's come up with a new name.
However, it sounds like what you really want is just to expand the character set beyond what text-value defines, to something more broad such as UTF-8. I guess I don't see that much value in expanding it (are underscores that more unreadable than spaces, and do we really need CR's?), but maybe you have some particular use cases in mind.
Well, here are the examples from the draft: X#NodeArchitecture="Microsoft Software Initiator/1.05a, Microsoft Windows/2003Build1489, Microsoft Cluster Services/2.0, CPU Architecture/x86_64" X#NodeArchitecture="Qlogic iSCSI 4010 Hardware Initiator/rev1, Qlogic Firmware/22.214.171.124, Qlogic Driver/126.96.36.199" X#NodeArchitecture="Linux iSCSI Software Initiator/4:0.1.11-3, Red Hat Enterprise Linux/4u3, Linux Kernel/2.6.9-34.26.ELsmp, CPU Architecture/i686, CPU Speed/3.06GHz, Memory Size/4059364kB" X#NodeArchitecture="NetApp Software Target/7.1, Data ONTAP/7.1, NetApp FAS/270c" Sure looks like spaces and CRs. :-) Take care, Bill -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (Darwin) iD8DBQFEz4pRDJT2Egh26K0RAhF5AJ4g3wMQFTpTzTcKSbFVdPqh/SRz5wCeKE7H vrhDsT23zCIIS0wJGqtFD/Q= =NUFI -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ Ips mailing list Ips@xxxxxxxx https://www1.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/ips
