udev fails to load device sda sda1 from a qla2200 hba
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:12:55 EST
Description of problem:
kernel 2.6.9 fails to load a hardware RAID 5 device attached using a
qla2200 hba. 2.6.8 loads it properly. 2.6.8 is not using udev.
I added the device files from /dev/ for sda sda1 into
/etc/udev/devices as noted in the documentation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable)
2.6.9-1.667 2.6.9-1.678_FC3 both dont work
2.6.8-1.521 does work
This happens every time I boot
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load 2.6.9 any version
2. duing boot watch the system
3. sytem goes into panic
The hba loads with out finding sda or sda1
Hba loads finding sda sda1
Have log files of both 2.6.8 and 2.6.9 files with comments
which I need to upload
Created attachment 107180 [details]
Dmesg /var/log/messages /proc/scsi/device_info lsmod comments
in /etc/udev/devices are the following sda sda1
which version of udev? Did you try to run mkinitrd after you updated udev?
I did run mkinitrd after making the entrys.
the version od udev is udev-039-10.FC3.2
Also in the 2.6.8 kernel sda sda1 loads before udev.
In the 2.6.9 kernels sda sda1 never load
do you have a scsi_hostadapter in your /etc/modprobe.conf??
s.th. like this:
alias scsi_hostadapter_0 qla2200
okok, read the attachement... reassigning to kernel, as this appears
more like a driver problem..
like this "alias scsi_hostadapter qla2200"
yes if you look add the log file lsmod does show it loaded
and if you look in the log at /proc/scsi/qla2xxx/0 you see the
hba and the raid device hanging off the hba. If you look at the
device_info file in the log.txt file you will see the dgc raid device
