Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 99131
ide-scsi with AMANDA causes complete system crash
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
using ide-scsi driver for tape backup with AMANDA package causes intermittent
kernel panic, complete system hang. constant errors in /var/log/messages are:
kernel: st0: Error with sense data: Current st09:00: sense key Illegal Request
kernel: Additional sense indicates Invalid command operation code
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
AMANDA-2.4.4p1 stable from amanda.org
kernel 2.4.20-18-7 rpm from rhn
ide-scsi 0.93 stock rh 7.3
st.c 20030406 stock rh 7.3 (apparently with Kai Makisara's patch)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt tape backup using AMANDA amdump
system hang. kernel panic or no console message at all.
tape backup completes successfully
tape drive is new ST20000A Travan (ide). tapes are new.
This is a kernel problem. I'm reassigning this to the kernel maintainers.
