From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 95; BTinternet CD 

Description of problem:
After a fresh install of RH 7.1 on server with aic-7896 on-board scsi, 
rebooting the system gets to the point where it looks for the scsi disk 
and gives the message:
scsi:  aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi 0, channel 0, id 0 
lun 0 enquiry 00 00 00 ff 00

The message is repeated for each id number and scsi channel
After the maximum has been reached (15 and 2 respectively) the following 4 
line message repeats ad-infinitum:
SCSI host 0 channel 0 reset (pid 0) timed out - trying harder
SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.
SCSI host 0 abort (pid 0) timed out - resetting
SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0
(SCSI 0:0:0:0) device reset, message buffer in use

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.reboot server

Additional info:

When the first install took place, I got a hang "trying to load aic7xxx". 
Having previously experienced this on another server, I used a boot image 
and typed "linux apic" at the boot prompt.  All seemed well ...

Did you install the SMP kernel ?

No, I hadn't - I have now and I'm the proud owner of a system that works - 
thank-you.  Alex Shannon
