SCSI Primary Commands (SPC-6) (Download the pdf)

LLEGAL REQUEST: Indicates that:
a) the command was addressed to an incorrect logical unit number (see SAM-5); ----> Here, because the LUNs no longer exist
b) the command had an invalid task attribute (see SAM-5);
c) the command was addressed to a logical unit whose current configuration prohibits processing the command;
d) there was an illegal parameter in the Command Descriptor Block; or
e) there was an illegal parameter in the additional parameters supplied as data for some commands (e.g., PERSISTENT RESERVE OUT).
If the device server detects an invalid parameter in the CDB, the device server shall terminate the command without altering the medium. If the device server detects an invalid parameter in the additional parameters supplied as data, then the device server may have already altered the medium.
