SCSI disk unrecognised using Advansys adapter
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:37:57 EST
The RH6 install program says my SCSI disk is not configured,
although it currently holds a succesful 5.1 installation. I
am using an Iwill 2930U+ SCSI adapter (i.e. Advansys). I
also have an IDE disk on my system, which is recognised.
Output from the install program is as follows:
<4> scsi: aborting command due to timout: pid 10, scsi 0,
channel 0, id 3, lun 0Read capacity 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
(occurs several times trying different pid and id)
<4> SCSI host 0 abort (pid 10) timed out - resetting
<4> SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0
<4> advansys: asc_isr_callback: board 0: scp c0ffca00 not on
<4> sda: sector size 0 reported, assuming 512.
<4> SCSI device sda: hdwr sector=512 bytes. Sectors=1 [0MB]
<4> sda:scsidisk I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 0
<4> unable to read partition table
Then the install continues without the SCSI disk
(obviously), just the IDE disk.
As I say. I'm already running a successful 5.1 from this
drive. Low-level reformat doesn't improve things either;
I've just had to re-install 5.1.
A couple of things could be happening here. One is that there is a hardware
problem with your SCSI adapter, but this is not likely considering that you have
an installation which is working on the drive. Two is that there is a bug in
the driver for your SCSI adapter in that release of the code. Have you been
able to get things going with a later release of the code? Please reopen this
bug if you are still having problems getting things going on your Iwill board.
