Description of problem:
mptscsih driver probes beyond 32 targets on parallel scsi
This problem shows up on Bull Nova scale installations. Just adding
this in case someone searches on install issues with Bull.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Both U2 and U3 candidate show this behavior
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Either install via anaconda or upgrade kernel
System shows Firmware bugs when probing the targets
There is a workaround.
If installing from anaconda add expert noprobe to the linux prompt.
Then when selecting drivers be sure to select the 20505 version of
mptbase and mptscsih.
If upgrading to the new kernel be sure to change /etc/modules.conf to
use this version of mptscsih
alias scsi_hostadapter mptbase_20505
alias scsi_hostadapter1 mptscsih_20505
Tom Coughlan is aware of the bug and is building me a test driver.
This was fixed in U4.
