12 H AutoRAID

The AutoRAID has 5 logical volumes, 11 physical disk (out of 12 available slots), and a stable array. However, if I add another disk (an 18GB SE 10k), the AutoRAID locks up saying "verifying disk(s)." If the disk is removed, the system goes back to "Ready" within 30 seconds. I've tried doing a shutdown, powering off, then placing the drive in and starting up the system but the AutoRAID gets stuck at "initializing 90." I have tried 3 known good disks, but I'm getting the same thing. We have tried replacing the chassis thinking that the slot on the backplane was bad, but even after replacing the chassis, the error persists...any suggestions?

Re: 12 H AutoRAID

Sounds to me like you have a flaky controller. I can't tell you which one. BUT if you do the following:

logprint > /tmp/logprint.out

Then post that output, I will tell you the issue!

Re: 12 H AutoRAID

I would check autoraid firmware.. Do you have any 18gb disks in the 12H currently?
