Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 411131
st tape driver fails to stream Quantum VS160 after drive power cycle
Last modified: 2012-06-20 09:19:22 EDT
Description of problem:
After power cycle of tape drive, 'st' driver gets stupid and
does something that prevents Quantum VS160 from streaming.
Requires reboot to work around the issue. 'stinit' does
It's apparent that some of the recent maintenance work done
on the 'st' driver has introduced regressions. I'm thinking
I may revert to the version from circa RHEL 4 U1, which I
recall worked just fine.
tape drive: Quantium VS160, firmware rev 44
scsi adapter: Adaptec 39320A
