Description Alexander Marx 2003-11-07 15:22:43 UTC

Description of problem:
System: RedHat AS 3.0 GM

Hardware setup: DL380 with 2 qlogic FC2214 cards connected to a
cascaded VA 7410 and VA 7100.

Driver version shipped with RH: qla2300 v6.06b11

Prior installing the system, RH needs about 10 Minutes loading qla2300
driver ("Loading qla2300 driver ..."). RH does not seem to recognize
any LUN's.

Later, at boot time the system needs approx. 7-10 min. to start:
"qla2x00_isr MBA_PORT_UPDATE ignored." or "Waiting for LIP to complete
...", there it hangs. Trying all varieties (un)plugging FC cables has
no effect.

HP's recommended driver version: qla2300 v6.06.50

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH AS 3.0 GM on the system described above
2. Boot the system

Expected Results:  The system should boot immediately and realize the
corresponding LUN's. SLES 8 SP2a ('Novell' Linux) on the same system
causes no problems.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-11-07 15:24:26 UTC
can you attach dmesg and lspci ?

Output of dmesg while running 'modprobe qla2300' manually

modprobe first seemed to hang the machine (probably during the resets), but
recovered later (after about 5 minutes)

Output of 'lspci'

Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2003-11-11 14:57:47 UTC

Output of 'lspci -v'

Comment 6 Alexander Marx 2003-11-27 16:34:02 UTC
The kernel package "kernel-smp-2.4.21-4.17.EL.i686.rpm" resolved the
problem, the LUN's are recognized and the driver does not hang the
system. Works with no problems so far, therefore resolved.

Comment 7 Nils Philippsen 2003-11-27 16:36:57 UTC
Solution isn't in publically available kernel packages, so setting to

Comment 8 Ernie Petrides 2005-10-06 00:39:29 UTC
This was fixed in RHEL3 U1.
