Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 501394
release 5.3 breaks supermicro x7db8 aix94xx sas
Last modified: 2014-06-02 09:20:50 EDT
Description of problem:
I use md-raid5 on a supermicro x7db8 machine. It has an adaptec sas controller with a aic94xx chip. It worked great in 5.2 and stopped working in 5.3 Shortly after boot I get IO errors and it flags drives as failed. I've never stayed booted long enough to collect more data, because I'm afraid of losing my raid array.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Install RHEL 5.3 on a supermicro x7db8 motherboard and use the aix94xx controller.
I removed the patch linux-2.6-scsi-aic94xx-update-to-2-6-25.patch from the build and everything works like a charm.
