Description Jure Pecar 2001-10-25 06:42:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.12-ac3 i686)

Description of problem:
3w-xxxx  module inserts properly, but when fdisk wants to access a raid1
volume configured on escalade 6200 card, some error is printed and that the
array is then not available for any r/w operations, so RedHat cannot be
installed on it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a 3w escalade card in the system
2. configure a raid1 array on it
3. try to install redhat on it ... 
	

Actual Results:  the error:

3w-xxxx: tw_interrupt(): Bad response, status = 0xc1, flags = 0x11, unit =
0x0.
3w-xxxx: tw_scsi_eh_reset(): Reset succeeded for card 1.
3w-xxxx: tw_interrupt(): Bad response, status = 0xc1, flags 0x11, unit 0x0.
scsi: device set offline - not ready or command retry failed after host
reset: host 1 channel 0 id 0 lun 0
SCSI disk error : host 1 channel 0 id 0 lun 0 return code = 80000
 I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 19539040
get_last_sector ioctl: bread returned NULL.

Expected Results:  I have 3ware cards in other systems but they don't boot
from them. I never had any problems with the 3w-xxxx module on various
kernels, so i see no reason that the module in the boot kernel doesn't
work.

an erratum to fix this issue is available at:

http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHBA-2001-131.html

it specifically provides an anaconda updates disk:

ftp://updates.redhat.com/7.2/en/os/images/i386/update-disk-20011009.img

Good luck and thanks for your report! :)
