Cpqcissm: Event ID 9 error

Hi,

I have a Proliant ML330G3 with Win2K (SP4) and PSP7.0. It comes with a Smart Array 642 and U320 HDDx2 and U3 cable connecting them.

After installation, the error appears in the event viewer:
The device, \Device\SCSI\cpcissm1, did not respond within the timeout period.

However, everything else appears to be fine and the mirrored HDD are okay. No other error appears other than during the startup (the above error).

I updated/change the cpqcissm driver but still the same.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Visit HP site and update the M&P Patch for same server, and check does it help you. Use ADU to daignos your server.

Re: Cpqcissm: Event ID 9 error

Check the cable, does it have any bent pins, is it terminated properly. Do you have a spare LVD cable to test with?

Note: U320 drives do not require M&P patch

Re: Cpqcissm: Event ID 9 error

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the late notice. Unfortunately, the problem still persist. I've tried to use the ADU but unfortunately, it does not support the SA642. I've checked HP site and there doesn't seem to be an undated version.

I've also replaced the cable with an known working one but still the same. This particular error, Event ID 9, cpqcissm only occurs during bootup and not any other time.

Any ideas, anyone?

Re: Cpqcissm: Event ID 9 error

Hi Jonathan,

What is the System BIOS version?
Which slot the controller is installed on?
Have we tried to change the slot?
Is the time reported for error is specific?

Re: Cpqcissm: Event ID 9 error

Hi Prashant,

The SA642 is connected to 2 units of 36GB U320 HDDs in RAID 1 (mirror).

Stripe size = 128KB.

Btw, i only found out that there is ADU in the SmartStart CD. Sorry, i didn't know that and must have downloaded an older version. Anyway, i ran that and it returns no problem found.

Re: Cpqcissm: Event ID 9 error

Hi Jagpal,

The only other card in the system is the Compaq wide ultra3 SCSI adapter in Slot 1 (it comes with the system). It is connected to the HP StorageWorks 40x6i Autoloader tape drive. I took out this card and just boot with the SmartArray 642 and still the same problem occurs.

Re: Cpqcissm: Event ID 9 error

Hi Jonathan,

I come across different option to check. I would say before try anything take backup first.

A)
Change the strip size

B)
Upgrade to Service Pack 6 or if this is not possible do the following workaround :
- Deactivate the Power Management Features in the F10 Setup
- Change the following registry key
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> WARNING <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Use Registry Editor at your own risk! Using the Registry Editor (Regedit) incorrectly can cause serious problems
that may require you to reinstall your operating system. There is no guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry
Editor can be solved.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
1. Open the Start Menu and select "Run..."
2. Type "Regedit" on the Open command line to open the Registry Editor.
3. Expand the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE".
4. Select SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Disk from the key.
5. Add a new DWORD Value under the above key.
6. The DWORD Value should be "TimeOutValue".
7. The value for the "TimeOutValue" should be 1F in Hex or 31 in Decimal.


C)

The problem been corrected in an updated version of the Compaq StorageWorks 64-bit/66-MHz Dual Channel Wide Ultra3 SCSI Controller Driver ADPU160M.SYS, Version 6.1.520.202 for Windows 2000 and Version 6.40.520.202 for Windows NT 4.0, available in Compaq SmartStart for Servers Release 5.20 (or later).
