problem with Surestore tape 6000i

Post by Luca Bianc » Tue, 25 Feb 1997 04:00:00



I have linux 2.0.27 and the following scsi devices :

scsi0 : Adaptec AHA274x/284x/294x (EISA/VLB/PCI-Fast SCSI) 4.0/3.2/4.0
 scsi : 1 host.
 scsi0: Scanning channel A for devices.
scsi0: Target 0, channel A, now synchronous at 10.0MHz, offset 15.      
   Vendor: HP        Model: 2.13GB A 50-300U  Rev: VCOD
   Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
 Detected scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
 scsi0: Target 3, channel A, now synchronous at 10.0MHz, offset 8.
   Vendor: HP        Model: C1533A            Rev: 9503
   Type:   Sequential-Access                  ANSI SCSI revision: 02
 Detected scsi tape st0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 3, lun 0

When i read the tape all works fine.

When i write the tape  ( using a tar command )  i have the following
error ( but only on big amount of data )

 kernel: scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 2121029,
scsi0,channel 0, id 0, lun 0 0x0a 1f 00 28 04 00
kernel: aic7xxx: (abort) Aborting scb 1, TCL 0/0/0

The tape switches reflects the pc-based unix configuration suggested
by HP.

Maybe there is a different configurations for Linux system ?

I have the above listed equipment.  I posted before and received
lots of help in even getting this card to be recognized.  I have
manually added the boot parms to have the adapter recognized and I have
created the proper devices rst0-7 and nrst0-7.  Since I can't stop
the scrolling during boot-up I can just see that the card is recognized
but the HP device is not being picked up even though I have turned on
Probe all LUNS.  Any ideas?  Below is the output I am getting for all
ids during the probe. Thank you.
