"finder -q" failure file "/tmp/finder.abort" exists

Hello,

Our cutomer haked to prepare a new disk 18GB (SCSI 68 pins ) with TRU64 Unix 4.0F on Alpha DS10 server.
I connected the disk to KZPCA-AX SCSI card.
When booting from Unix CD , i am getting the following :

Re: "finder -q" failure file "/tmp/finder.abort" exists

How much of this hardware was working before
you started to change things?

What, exactly, did you change?

Does Tru64 V4.0F know what a KZPCA is? It
looks unhappy:

Or is this a _generic_ IntraServer card, and
not a genuine DEC/Compaq IntraServer card, so
that it doesn't have the right firmware?

(I know how VMS complains when it sees an
unofficial IntraServer card. I don't know
what Tru64 does, but this looks as if it
might be the Tru64 edition of "I don't like
that card.")

Have you tried a KZPBA? (As I recall, VMS
would work with some generic/other-vendor
KZPBA-like (Qlogic) cards, but Tru64 wanted
a genuine KZPBA, so you'd need a real KZPBA,
too.)

Roger,

If you have a true 3X-KZPCA-AA with Alpha Firmware, then you need the required patches for 4.0F:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/alphaserver/options/asds10/asds10_3x-kzpca-aa.html

http://www13.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/tru64AggrKitPage.do?BC=main|tru64AggrIndexPage|&aggrId=DUV40FB22AS0008-20030730

There are other versions of this card with firmware that won't work in this system. So you'll need to verify the exact part number on the module.

Hello,

The card is labeled as the following :

P/N KZPCA-AX
S/N CD94703951
REV A01

> P/N KZPCA-AX

That sounds like the real thing. Now all you
need is some software which knows what it is.

I've read about NHD (New Hardware Delivery)
kits (CD-ROM) which provide device support
for older Tru64 versions, but I've never
needed to use one, so I know nothing. (I
never used Tru64 V4.x, either.) Does that
patch kit include any useful instructions for
this situation?

Re: "finder -q" failure file "/tmp/finder.abort" exists

like Steven allready said : "Does Tru64 V4.0F know what a KZPCA is?"

Even Tru64 V5.1 OS CD won't recognize the DS10 controler by itself, and you must boot from the NHD CD!
This CD will make a preinistall disk with OS and additional drivers for the DS10 and controler.
If it also works with V4.0F I cannot say.
This you'll have to try yourself.
