Based on this:

scsi: Device offlined - not ready after error recovery: host 2 channel 0 id 0 lun 0

and a similar bug I've seen for RHEL bug #175188 I'd wager it's this fix:


A few things - you're not on the latest FC 4 update kernel 

2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 which looks as if it has this fix in already, you can try yum
update kernel to get the latest update.

If the latest update does not resolve - can you try attaching the
device/powering on the device after doing:

echo 12295 > /sys/module/scsi_mod/scsi_logging_level

and attach the resulting log.

new dmesg output

I've upgraded to kernel 2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 but still no luck

This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO_REPORTER state.
