Description steven.carbonari 1999-05-27 21:51:21 UTC
When a sytem is configured with a Mylex DAC960PTL, it is not
found during the SCSI scan and the user is asked if there
are are additional SCSI adapters. After selecting "yes" and
then selecting Mylex DAC960 from the adapter list, the
install script returns to the SCSI configuration screen, but
does not list the DAC960 as an adapter found.  From there
the user can select "No" and installation will continue
normally just as if it had in fact found the Mylex DAC960.

The failure was recreated on several systems w/ the DAC960.
If an AMI MegaRAID adapter is substituted for the Mylex
DAC960, the SCSI Configuration is updated correctly when AMI
MegaRAID is selected from the list of adapters.

Comment 1 Matt Wilson 1999-05-28 23:50:59 UTC
The DAC960 driver does not use the SCSI midlayer in the kernel,
therefore it does not show up in a listing of current SCSI adapters.
The Compaq Smart/2 array controllers do this as well.  The AMD
MegaRAID, however, does use the SCSI midlayer.  Until there is a
common interface for RAID controllers that don't use the SCSI midlayer
this will not be fixed - as the problem is really only cosmetic and
not functional.
