Joe:

Shutdown your server.
Check the SCSI cables going to the drive cages and from your controller that they are seated firmly.
Make sure the SCSI controller is seated firmly in the PCI slot.

This error relates to some SCSI device that has "fallen" off of the SCSI chain or was not discovered in time during the SCSI poll.

Does this server have a tape drive installed? If so, how is it connected? (internal, external and on what controller?)

Are there any drives in your server lit with amber LED's?

What generation ML530 do you have? (G1 or G2)

What Smart Array Controller are you using?

What version of windows are you using?

John,

I don't think so. The end result was we replaced the mother board,Scsi controller,Scsi Cache RAM,Scsi cables and finnally it was a bad hard drive. The hard activety light was a steady green light where the other drivers were not steady. I hope this helps anyone out there.
