I think this is for old guest, like win NT4. Not sure we really need them ;)

I don't have hardware to test it .... But Yes, I have read that users request it in the forum

so this is with local /dev/sgX.  file=/dev/sgx   scsi-blk ?

So this part is for ISCSI tapes, should be easy iscsi://ip/lun  . scsi-generic ?
iscsidirect storage plugin can do the job I think.


Maybe their is some emulators which can simulate a tape drive to test ?

Just looking at the changelog found at: http://wiki.qemu.org/ChangeLog/1.2 

> Three new SCSI host bus adapter devices are available: am53c974 and dc390 emulate

should we add them (scsihw)?

Also, how can we passthrough SCSI tapes?

That would be a great feature if we can make that work.
