Description of problem:
System ID: 1001571217 shows a lot of unidentified devices under 'Other Devices'.
Some of these identify fine with lspci
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run sysreport
2. shedule hardware list refresh
3. compare lspci in sysreport to what RHN shows
Actual Results: the following devices are missing:
QLA2300 64-bit FC-AL Adapter
QLA2300 64-bit FC-AL Adapter (yes, there are two)
AHA-3960D / AIC-7899A U160/m
AHA-3960D / AIC-7899A U160/m (yes, there are two)
NetXtreme BCM5701 Gigabit Ethernet
NetXtreme BCM5701 Gigabit Ethernet (yes, there are two)
RAID subsystem HBA
RAID subsystem HBA (yes, there are two)
Whatsmore, at least the QLA2300 are wrong, they are in fact QLA2310F
Expected Results: Correct display of hardware
Additional info: The other unknown devices are of Class Host bridge, we may want
to put that info into the RHN pages as well as Host bridge is more descriptive
than unknown device.

lspci file from sysreport
whats /etc/sysconfig/hwconf look like? thats where up2date/rhn_register
gets it's hardware info from.
If it's out of date, sounds more like a kudzu issue (kudzu generates that).
Also, was this system updated? It's possible the system registered
at some point past with less meaningful pci mappins.
up2date takes the information from kudzu. Check Adrian's post.
pong: it's a customer's machine. As it has not checked into RHN since 2002-12-13
03:41:56 EST getting therequired info from there seems unlikely.
I'll refile this if I can reproduce on a system I have control over. Close for now.
