Description Need Real Name 2000-10-11 10:12:05 EDT

I've installed some days ago a RedHat 7.0 System on my new DELL Power Edge

Components are:

2 Pentium III 733 Mhz - 512 M SDRAM ECC PC133
Hard RAID Card: Perc Driver , 4 9 GB Hard Disks attached
Adaptec Ultra 160 controler: AIC-7799, One ARCHIVE PYTHON DAT DDS 4 drive

Kernel is SMP 2.2.16 that cames with the RedHat 7 dist.

My problem:

When i try to backup data to the DAT driver with tar or cpio, system
hangs, System crashes: i only can reboot turning the power off then on.

Please help,

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-11 10:14:32 EDT
tar and cpio by themselves can't hang the whole system; must be a kernel
Is this an SCSI tape drive?
Comment 2 Perry Harrington 2000-12-07 04:07:36 EST
the archive python drive is a dds2 drive.   This is the one that can be commonly
found as a 4 tape autochanger or as a sun drive oemed.

Note, he's using a u160 controller, that's most likely his problem, since there
are a lot of other bugs open on that controller.

Believed working in RH8/9 from our own expeirence. Re-open if not
