Hi! Linux gurus,

   Recently, I got a fast wide SCSI harddisk from seagate. It is 4.3 GBytes.
   I have a SCSI controller SIIG UltraSCSI BusMaster SCI controller card.
   I try to install the Redhat 4.2 into it.
    1. exstart.bat
    2. detect the SCSI (I use the other driver to detect it)
    3. install necessary packages
    4. install LILO
    5. then reboot

  I boot from SCSI ID 0 (I turn off all the IDE driver from BIOS).
  Then, it boots
  Then, it display all 01 01 pair on my screen.

  Can anyone enlighten me what's going on? Please!
  Thank you very much! I don't have problem when I run 4.2 under IDE driver.

  Thank you very much!!

1. AIX 4.3.1, IBM 6208 Fast Wide SCSI, Seagate Ultra Wide 9.1 Gb drive?

Hello list!!

I am a technician for a company called Procom Technology.  We are resellers
of hardrives and I am having a tough time with a tricky AIX problem.  If

as I am not on the mailing list.  The situation I have is that a customer
has bought  a Seagate ST19171W from my company with the guarantee that it
would work in their system (described above).  From what I can tell over
the phone (ESP) is that the SCSI controller is configured correctly in the
system and is functioning correctly.  However, contrary to my experience
(with other OSes) AIX detecting the SCSI card does not impy that the
hardrive will be detected.  I need to find out if it is possible to
configure a non-IBM signature drive in AIX?  If it is, how is it done.  All
responses are appreciated.  Quick responses are highly appreciated (This
customer is flipping out!).

Many Thanks!
