SCO OpenServer PANIC message on Netserver LH3

We have recently powered off one of our clients' SCO servers for relocation after 4 years of stable operation. On powering back on, we started getting a message that read:

H iinit
PANIC: srmountfun - Error 22 mounting rootdev hd (1/42)
Cannot dump 130975 pages to dumpdev hd (1/41): Space for only 0 pages

Dump not completed

NOTICE: Flushing HPNETRAID Adapter(s)

followed by a request to power off.

Please advise urgently. Thanks.

Hi,

I am not too good at SCO th error you are refering to is relevent to sco only.
Just to validate the hdd and raid status use Ctrl + M option at boot that will able to help you with raid problems.

Re: SCO OpenServer PANIC message on Netserver LH3

Thanks for that.

I had a feeling it had to be a termination issue from what I had read on the SCO site previously, and I tried the following:

Changed the SCSI channel from A to B, same error.
Changed the SCSI cable (terminated), same error.
Changed from 1 server to another (in case hot swap backplane faulty), same error.

And this is where I am stuck for now... Please advise.

Re: SCO OpenServer PANIC message on Netserver LH3

hi

if I am right

teminator resides in,
*) Contoller side
*) Cable
*) HDD side.

u check one by one, and also u should have only one, not with the combinations.

Check in RAID Adapter - here your controller is RAID card not ur scsi adapter....

If not atlast replace ur raid card, and u may confirm (Ensure id/slots are in proper place when u connect in different place, since misplacing may cause raid volume problem)

Re: SCO OpenServer PANIC message on Netserver LH3

SCO is/was configured to look for a specific mount point (/dev/sdc ??). If you move to another adapter or channel, SCO will not no where to look to mount it.

If the error is consistant across multiple adapters (IE from the internal Netraid to another SCSI adapter) then I would be suspect of the drive itself....

I forget the exact sco command but try:

boot -single

then try fsck on the volume....
or try

boot -scsiprobe (or -probe I forget) and then reboot...
