HELP: RAID-1 Duplidisk

Post by El Bunz » Thu, 09 Nov 2000 04:00:00


I have an ArcoIde RAID-1 Duplidisk (Bay) installed on my Redhat 6.2 box.

Everything works just fine. But how do I get notified when one of the
disks fail?
The machine will be put into the machine-room of my provider, so I
cannot check
for the beeps in case of failure.

Is there any software which checks the status of the Duplidisk and
notifies me (by
email or logfile) when one of the drives fail?

Don't Worry:

You can use the TTL output to control an autodialer or pager.  Call
(800) 458-1666 for more info.  Ask for Joel.

1. Intel 815e mobo, Arco DupliDisk 2 raid 1card, and DMA problems

Hello All:

I have a Intel motherboard w/ 815e chipset.  Additionally, I'm using
an Arco DupliDisk 2 IDE raid card to mirror two 40 gig IBM Deskstar
drives w/ 80 pin IDE cables.  When firing up linux 2.4.9, I get tons

hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: dma_intr: error=0x84 { DriveStatusError BadCRC }

Turning off DMA of course stops these annoying errors which get
written to the console.  However, I can't stand the slow throughput.

What's intresting is that I moved the raid card and hard drives into
an older intel motherboard - an SE440BX, and DMA had no problems in
linux.  This leads me to believe it's with my mobo w/ the 815e

Anyone have any leads?

Thank you,
Robin Yamaguchi
