Megaraid driver resets indefinitly unless acpi=off
Last modified: 2008-01-04 14:38:30 EST
Description of problem: When booting one of our servers which contains a LSIL
Megaraid SATA 300-8x controller the megaraid driver loops the following error
megaraid: 188.8.131.52 (Release Date: Mon Sep 27 22:15:07 EDT 2004)
megaraid: probe new device 0x1000:0x0409:0x1000:0x3008: bus 3:slot 14:func 0

This gets repated thrice
scsi: Device offlined - not reading after error recovery: host 0 channel 0 id 1
These messages repeat indefinitly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Defining acpi=off at the bootprompt fixes the issue for now.
According to Matt Domsch, it is likely a IRQ routing issue. Attaching complete
dmesg output and giving a bit more specs about the box:
The Mainboard is a Tyan Tomcat i7210 (S5112) with the bios version 105.
According to the website at http://www.tyan.com/support/html/b_s5112.html there
is a new release which fixes "some compatibility issues with Adaptec SCSI card
and ARC-1120 raid card".
I'll see if this bios fixes the megaraid issue as well during the next scheduled
Created attachment 115200 [details]
kernel bootup log
Still an issue with a recent kernel?
If no, is "acpi=noirq" a sufficient workaround?
If yes, please attach the dmesg and /proc/interrupts from success & failure
Closing issue. I cannot observe this problem anymore with recent RHEL 4.x.
