External SCSI JBOD causes Kernel panic
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:40:47 EST
Description of problem:
Brand new Dell PE850 server, installed Fedora Core 5 on internal SATA drive
no problems. Added Apaptec ASC-39320 SCSI card still all ok. Connected external
SCSI JBOD (AXUS Yotta 4TB array Raid5) at boot up now get:
Red Hat nash version 5.0.32 starting
BUG: spinlock recursion on CPU#0, scsi_eh_0/350 (Not tainted)
lock: f7dc54c0, .magic: dead4ead, .owner: scsi_eh_0/350, .owner_cpu: 0
Kernel panic -not syncing: bad locking
This is 100% reproducable. If SCSI JOBOD disconnected no problems. Initial
Kernal was 2.6.15-1 upgraded to 2.6.16-1.2122_FC5smp
Used Adaptec SCSI BIOS tools to check external disk, including 100% verify,
found no problems. Swapped SCSI cable and terminator still no change.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shut system down
2. Connect external SCSI JBOD
3. Power system on
Always get Kernal panic at same point with external disk connected.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5

systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
