Description CAI Qian 2008-09-19 06:40:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes, I have seen SCSI disk boot messages have been changed among different boots with the same Kernel,


 SCSI device sdc: drive cache: write through
  sdc: sdc1
 Attached scsi disk sdc at scsi0, channel 0, id 2, lun 0

How reproducible:
occasionally (1 in 10 boots?)
Comment 1 CAI Qian 2008-09-19 08:38:55 EDT
Don't know if this is a regression, but I could not reproduce the issue for RHEL 4.6 GA Kernel (2.6.9-78.EL) for rebooting around 20 times.
Comment 2 CAI Qian 2008-09-21 21:41:25 EDT
I could reproduce it with kernel-2.6.9-78.0.3.EL. Let me run it for a longer period to see if it is there since RHEL 4.7.
Comment 3 CAI Qian 2008-10-22 08:39:10 EDT
Any idea on why would these information would change? Is it because there are two disks in the controller, and one of them has been picked up randomly?
Comment 4 Vitaly Mayatskikh 2009-03-16 10:06:05 EDT
We need to know full h/w configuration for SCSI bus, may be there is some kind of collision. I'll ask RHTS admins.
Comment 5 CAI Qian 2009-05-01 12:13:14 EDT
The machine iin question (groucho.rhts.bos.redhat.com) is broken at the moment.

I'll close this out for now, and I can reopen this if have seen another occurrence in the future.
