RHEL 5.6 readiness / qla2xxx

I'm curious if anyone else has upgrade from RHEL 5.5 to 5.6, specifically on SAN connected Blade servers?

I have a test server and ran the yum updates, on reboot I noticed some qla2xxx messages that I hadn't before and it took a while to boot, though it eventually came up and the SAN drives looked ok. The second reboot was faster.

The messages were 2 of these:

qla2xxx unable to read FCP priority data

Not finding a whole lot useful yet via google on that... I may have missed those before though as I haven't been at this position all that long.

Thanks for any input.

Re: RHEL 5.6 readiness / qla2xxx

What kernel is RHEL 5.6?
We started out at 5.3 and patching brought us to 5.5 (2.6.18-194...)

Take a look at this:

It oculd be an issue with new drivers with the latest RHEL releases? The trhead posted seems to be the kernel for RHEL 6.0 though but who knows.

Kernel in 5.6 is 2.6.18-238.1.1.el5

I'm guessing that there are no issues based on my testing.

Patched my sandy to the latest kernel (RHEL 5.6) and I also got the messages.. everything seems working well too.
