I am having this same problem. Has this issue been resolved to date? Are there any settings that can be configured in the array utility software that will prevent this error?

I am also having this same issue on a Compaq Proliant DL360.

Hopefully this error is not a sign of file corruption.

I'm seeing this error but it is on a dl 580 with a MSA 30 running windows 2003. The error is periodic. Has there been a solution to this?

Re: The device, \Device\Scsi\cpqarry21, is not ready for access yet.

This error can, according to Compaq, be safely disregarded.

Your system has an older, slower array controller (like the Compaq Integrated Smart Array controller, for example). Win 2K and 2K3 expect the driver to load faster than it's able to, so you get an error.

However, even tho it's slower than expected, Compaq says the driver DOES load and is perfectly functional.

there's a link to an obscure old Compaq doc here:

ftp://161.114.23.171/pub/supportinformation/papers/11q5-0199a-wwee.pdf

The doc has issues you should expect when installing Win2K Server (we'll assume that also means 2K3), and this one is on the list. The rest of the doc makes interesting reading, as well.
