Vmunix error in Syslog!!!

Hi all,

In the syslog of a HP K-Class server the following error message is reflected.
vmunix: spt_send_reply_msg: unexpected msg, 134

Anybody pls help.

Re: Vmunix error in Syslog!!!


Looks like a problem with your spt (SCSI pass thru driver). Suggest you have a look in 'stm' to see if any errors can be picked up using your tape robotics. This is what the message seems to be interpreting.

Anyone for a Mutiny ?

Re: Vmunix error in Syslog!!!

Just to add to Michaels answer. The fact that the line starts with 'vmunix:' means that the kernel has detected the problem. As opposed to another program like 'rpcbind:' or 'inetd[888]:'.
