One SCSI controller is not recognized with another SCSI controller

One SCSI controller is not recognized with another SCSI controller

Post by Dong H Na » Thu, 24 Apr 1997 04:00:00


I have an ISA SCSI controller (AHA1522B) to which Iomega Jaz external
and Plextor SCSI CD-ROM internal are attached and a PCI SCSI (AHA2940UW)
with two wide hard drives attached (C:, D:).

When I tried to boot from Debian Linux (Debian GNU/Linux 1.2.2), the
first SCSI controller (AHA1522B) was not recognized, but AHA2940UW was.
I disabled the bios of AHA1522B in vain. I tried with Slackware Linux
with the same result.

I can connect the CD-ROM to AHA2940UW, but I have Jaz still on the
AHA1522B since AHA2940UW works that way.

Please let me know if there is any way I can use both of the controllers
or I can use all of the devices (Wide SCSI H/Ds, SCSI CD-ROM, SCSI Jaz)
on the AHA2940UW..

1. Can't access SCSI controller - not recognized?

Red Hat 8.0, Symbios SCSI 5C1010/Sym53c8xx

I can't access any devices attached to my LSI/Symbios SCSI controller.

I notice that when the machine boots up, there are no messages that show
that the LSI/Symbios controller is recognized.

However, in the modules.conf file there is an entry for the device as
scsi_hostadapter1.  There is also an entry in
/etc/sysconfig/hardware.conf for the Symbios controller.

If I try to access the first SCSI drive w/ 'fdisk -l /dev/sda' I get a
null result.

Any ideas what might be wrong??
