Description Curt 2004-11-22 14:16:08 UTC
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

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:

The hba loads with out finding sda or sda1

Expected results:

Hba loads finding sda sda1

Additional info:
Have log files of both 2.6.8 and 2.6.9 files with comments
which I need to upload

Dmesg  /var/log/messages /proc/scsi/device_info lsmod  comments

in /etc/udev/devices are the following sda  sda1

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-22 14:20:40 UTC
which version of udev? Did you try to run mkinitrd after you updated udev?

Comment 3 Curt 2004-11-22 15:15:19 UTC
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

Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-22 15:27:41 UTC
do you have a scsi_hostadapter  in your /etc/modprobe.conf??
s.th. like this:
alias scsi_hostadapter_0 qla2200

Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-22 15:31:11 UTC
okok, read the attachement... reassigning to kernel, as this appears
more like a driver problem..

Comment 6 Curt 2004-11-22 15:47:14 UTC
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

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 18:12:56 UTC
