Justin, do you recognize this problem?

Driver 6.2.36, "DV failed to configure device.  Please file a bug report against
this driver."

Comment 2 Justin T. Gibbs 2003-10-27 17:24:20 UTC
The spurious error report is caused by the IBM DPSS-318350M failing to
support an echo buffer for Domain Validation.  This is required by the
U160 spec.  There is a firmware update for these drives that enables
proper echo-buffer support.

Future versions of the driver will not print this diagnostic for missing
echo-buffer support since it generates too much email for little benefit.
Domain Validation rarely finds configuration issues at U160 speeds.

Comment 3 Tom Coughlan 2003-10-27 17:44:19 UTC
Thanks Justin.

I'll close this bug. The firmware update should fix it.
