Description Peter Miller 2003-04-03 04:30:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
RedHat Advanced Server 2.1

I work for Platypus Technology.  We make solid state storage devices.
Our testing indicates that an additional vendor line is required in 
drives.scsi/scsi_scan.c, a patch is attached.

Without this patch, "scsi: DISK CAPACITY: failure" error messages frequently 
occur when attempting to access Platypus QikLINK fibre channel devices.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.9-e.3
kernel-smp-2.4.9-e.3
kernel-source-2.4.9-e.3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Platypus QikLINK product
2. without the patch, attempt to load you fibre channel device driver module
3. examine /var/log/messages, you will see the error "scsi: DISK CAPACITY: 
failure" message
    

Expected Results:  No error should appear.
All LUNS should be reported by
cat /proc/scsi/scsi

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-03 13:55:59 UTC
I'm passing this request on to our storage specialist for adding to the sourcebase. 

Comment 3 Tom Coughlan 2003-04-09 20:02:55 UTC
This has been checked in for RHEL 2.1, x86 and ia64.

(Based on the kernel version you running, I see you are running RHEL 2.1, not
RHL 8.0)

I also submitted this to Marcelo and Alan, so all future kernels should have it.

Comment 5 Suzanne Hillman 2003-10-03 15:08:35 UTC
Since it's been almost 6 months since the patch was checked in, with no comments
saying that it was not actually fixed, I'm closing this. Please reopen if the
problem still exists.
