Subject: DL140 G2 and HP Ultra320 SCSI single channel addapter

Hi,
I work at a school and we've just been donated a DL140-G2. I've installed CentOS 5 (RHEL5) but I'm getting some odd scsi problems.

in /var/log/messages I'm seeing lots of things like this:

target 2:0:1: Beginning Domain Validation
mptscsih: ioc0: attempting task abort! (sc=c11cc80)
scsi 2:0:1:0: command: Inquiry: 12 00 00 00 60 00
mptbase: Initiating ioc0 recovery
mptscsih: ioc0: Issue of TaskMgmt Failed!
mptscsi: ioc0: task abort: FAILD (sc=c1ccc80)
mptscsi: ioc0: attempting target reset!

The scsi drive that is connected to the other end of the scsi cable is bf03699bc6 with HPB1 firmware

I don't seem to be able to find much to work with in regard to firmware/drivers for the scsi card. It has some poduct numbers that return no results from a search on the hp site. (sp# 403051-001 as#399480-001 and LSI20320C-HP.

I've tried a HP insight diagnostic cd and downloaded the smartstart cd (only to find out the smartstart cd doesn't work with the DL140-G2. But it reports that everything is fine.

I'm now sat here scratching my head wondering where I'll find the latest firmware/drivers for the card and drive and anything I can use to diagnose whats going on.

Regards
Alistair

Shalom Alistair,

The card may not be certified on that hardware.

Or you may merely need to terminate it properly with the right device or a terminator.

Hi,
Thanks, I really didn't expect a reply so quick
;-)

Do you know where I could find any documentation on how to check this?
