Description IBM Bug Proxy 2003-07-31 14:53:43 UTC
The following has be reported by IBM LTC:  
[BETA] formatting disk floods EC console with messages
Please fill in each of the sections below.

Hardware Environment:

zSeries 2064-116, shark e20

Software Environment:

taroon-s390-as-disc1.iso 21-Jul-2003 23:32   124M  

under VM

Steps to Reproduce:
1. specify dasd= in parmfile for a non-CDL formatted disc
2. choose autopartition
3. when message asks to format device CDL, reply yes

Actual Results:

EC console is flooded with the message:

dasd: /dev/dasda (94:0), 530b@0e: dasd_format: dervice is open! expect errors.

and the format stops until you either clear the screen (many times) or
disconnect your EC session.

Expected Results:

EC console should NOT be flooed with messages. The device should NOT be open
during formatting.

Additional Information:This had an additional unwanted side effect. To get on
with the process, I
disconnected from the VM EC machine. When I started the actual install, the
install aborted, but I could not see the message. 

The second time, I disconnected during the format, then reconnected after the
formatting was complete. During the install, the EC console stopped the install
with insufficient memory. (I then added enough memory and continued).

The EC console really shouldn't be flooded with these messages

Debug level is intentionally turned up due to having some weird hangs and trying
to track them down.  Will be back to the level it was in A4 for the final release.
