Description Alan Ferrier 2004-10-28 11:37:27 EDT
Description of problem:

ioctl on HP Smart Array 532 returns an error when querying sector
size. This essentially means that the installation of Oracle 10g with
Automatic Storage Management fails. This has also been raised with Oracle

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

Linux version 2.4.21-20.ELsmp (bhcompile@tweety.build.redhat.com) (gcc
version 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-42)) #1 SMP Wed Aug 18
20:46:40 EDT 2004

How reproducible:

Always reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:

# blockdev --getsize /dev/cciss/c0d2
71130720
# blockdev --getss /dev/cciss/c0d2
BLKSSZGET: Invalid request code
  
Actual results:

# blockdev --getss /dev/cciss/c0d2
BLKSSZGET: Invalid request code

Expected results:

# blockdev --getss /dev/cciss/c0d2
512

Comment 1 Alan Ferrier 2004-10-28 11:46:51 EDT
Notes : This behaviour is reproducible on all ES3 releases (to update
3) and also on vanilla 2.4 kernels (to 2.4.27)

We have installed a test 2.6.9 kernel on this hardware, This detects
and reports the blockdev information correctly.
Comment 2 Alan Ferrier 2004-10-29 12:22:02 EDT
May possibly be related to Bugzilla Feature #109881 - this "bug" was
EL 2.1 related and it was stated that the same issue didn't affect EL
3 - It certainly seems similar and the test code supplied to reproduce
the problem on EL 2.1 certainly appears to imply the bug still exists
in EL 3.

Comment 4 Ernie Petrides 2004-11-10 21:32:03 EST
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U4
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-24.EL).

Comment 7 Ernie Petrides 2004-12-13 16:50:06 EST
This bug was inappropriately listed in the above 2.1 Errata (listed above),
and thus should not have yet been closed.  I'm reverting it to MODIFIED
state until the RHEL3 Erratum is released (which should be in a week).
