SCSI Adaptec AHA1542[BC] Aborting command due to timeout

SCSI Adaptec AHA1542[BC] Aborting command due to timeout

Post by Phil Ror » Wed, 14 Aug 1996 04:00:00



During probe() (I think) , getting:

scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi0, id 0, lun 0 0x00 00 \
00 00 00 00
SCSI host 0 abort() timed out - resetting
sent bus device reset for target 0
sending DID_RESET for target 0
sending DID_RESET for target 0
sending DID_RESET for target 0
sending DID_RESET for target 0
sending DID_RESET for target 0
....

And gets stuck in a loop repeating the above messages.

Things tried so far all with same error:
- two different AHA1542's (1542b and 1542cp).
- various IRQ's.
- Disabled on-board BIOS.
- only con* 'CONFIG_CHR_DEV_ST' into kernel
- with CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD and CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SR
- with auto-termination,
- with termination-enabled.
- with the 4mm DAT tape attached (external--only SCSI device used),
- without a scsi device attached
- disabled all advanced bios settings

System looks like this (when AHA1542 is not installed, that is):

BTW, one card worked fine in another machine, 2d one is fresh outta the box.

Any ideas?

Hmm, first of all you can rule out IRQ and BIOS problems.  This looks
like a clear case of termination and/or cable problems.  I'm surprised
you get the same problem WITHOUT the DAT attached.

Tell me if this doesn't work

  1) Disable on-board BIOS
  2) Set your card to a vacant IRQ
  3) Remove the cable from the *board*
  4) Enable termination on the aha1542 (how depends on version)
  5) Verify that the aha1542 has hostid 7
  6) Boot

If this work (and nothing is detected)

  7) Make sure the DAT is terminated
  8) Verify the DAT has host id 0 (or any other different from 7)
  9) Plug the DAT and host adapter together BE SURE TO TURN THE CABLE RIGHT!
 10) Boot.

If it still doesn't work, try another cable.

Try jumpering the 1542 to a port address of 0x334.  The default of 0x330 will
conflict with the midi port address on a Soundblaster or similar card.

1. HELP: adaptec 2940u2, gateway E5200, IBM LVD disks - aborting command due to timeout!

So, I get a new gateway E 5200 machine to put linux on, with
an adaptec 2940U2 scsi card and 2 IBM LVD disks.

NT works 'ok' on it (for some value of 'ok' ;-).

However, when I boot RedHat 6.1 CD on it all I get is:

<4>scsi: 1 host.
<4>scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 Test Unit Ready 00 00 00 00 00
<4>SCSI host 0 abort (pid 0) timed out - resetting
<4>SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.
<4>SCSI host 0 channel 0 reset (pid 0) timed out - trying harder
<4>SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.

the last 4 lines repeat indefinately.

Anybody have any idea what's wrong or how to get around this?
