I/O hardware probe timed out at path 0/3/0/0. or relative to it

PC desktop set up with telnet to HP, 11.23 OS.
I run 2 telnet sessions for fbackup, and
while sessions running, if I open up Internet Explorer on the same PC, the telnet sessions will freeze, and the above error occurs in the syslog for both tapes drives.
fbackup hangs (needs a reboot of server) along with an /sbin/ioscan -F
What on the network needs to be looked at or what on the PC desktop needs to be looked at?

Re: I/O hardware probe timed out at path 0/3/0/0. or relative to it

IMHO this is not related to your PC or network, most likely a hardware problem on the server. Any messages in syslog or MP log?

Hope this helps!

this only occurs when the PC is used to open up Internet Explorer.
this is the errors in syslog.log

What is on 0/3/0/0?

# ioscan -fn

Hope this helps!

It would be a dramatic miracle if IE could crash a server that way ... ;-)

Hope this helps!

I have 2 DLT tape drives - one at 0/3/0/0 and one at 0/9/0/0.

Again, this error only occurs if the PC is used to open up Internet Explorer.

If the 2 session run without any interference, the backup runs to completeion

its not crashing the server, it is just hanging the fbackup process.

So it would be a good idea to start fbackup in background or start from console. IMHO the first choice is better.

Hope this helps!

Shalom,

Lots of things can cause fbackup to appear to hang.

Backing up a large file for example can make you think it is hung off.

There is really no relationship between how a PC acts and how HP-UX systems act. Yes they use some common hardware components, but that is where the similarity ends.

I think there may be an unterminated scsi problem here on the indicated I/O path.

I would run cstm/mstm/xstm and probe the hardware and look for faults.

Re: I/O hardware probe timed out at path 0/3/0/0. or relative to it

it only happens when the PC is used to access the Internet. If the PC is not used for that, the fbackups run to completetion.

This is a strange problem and never seen it before. Why dont you can try from a different PC and see what happens?
