Not the usual AIC7xxx problem - I think

Not the usual AIC7xxx problem - I think

Post by James A Wild » Tue, 18 Jul 2000 04:00:00



Setup is a Fujitsu H532i Team Server with dual Pentium 100 MHz and dual
AIC7870 on-board SCSI.  The first SCSI adapter is loaded with 4 Seagate 2 Gb
drives (ids 0,1,2 and 4), 1 Matshita CD-ROM (id 5) and a HP tape drive (id
6).  I have been assuming that I have the traditional problem detailed
elsewhere but I have now managed to record the messages coming through
during rescue start, and I'm not getting the kernel panic messages others
are reporting.  Instead I'm getting reports of parity errors:

(scsi0:0:0:0) Parityerror during Message-In phase.
scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun
0 Test Unit Ready 00 00 00 00 00

[repeat of above two lines]

SCSI host 0 abort (pid 0) timed out - resetting
SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.
SCSI host 0 channel 0 reset (pid 0) timed out - trying harder
SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.

[repeat of these four lines]

SCSI host 0 reset (pid 0) timed out again -
probably an unrecoverable SCSI bus or device hang.
(scsi0:0:0:0) Parity error during Message-In phase

...and the system hangs and waits for Crtl-Alt-Del

Does anyone recognize this behaviour and have an explanation of what might
be wrong.  Is this just another symptom of the problem which others report
as a kernel panic?

Thanks in advance for any help.

James

I ran into a similar problem with kernel 2.2.16-3smp.  I switched back
to 2.2.14-5smp and all is fine.  Here is the link for the Bugzilla
report with RedHat:

Thanks for the suggestion, Mike, but I have already tried RH 6.1 on another
lead without success.  I assume RH 6.1 is at least as early as 2.2.14-5smp?

1. nfs problem ( not your usual rpc:not found )

I am trying to mount a filesystem from a RH6.1 box to a RH6.2 box.  

export file looks like this:

/this/filesystem client(rw)

fstab on client has a line like this:

server:/this/filesystem /mnt/here nfs rsize=1024,wsize=1024 0 0

So far so good.
Now a do a mount -a on the client.  No problem.  A df -k shows the mounted filesystem.
However, when I do an ls /mnt/here there are no files.  It's just empty.  
The messages log on the server says the following whenever I try to access anything within
the mounted filesystem:

server kernel: fh_verify: //server permission failure, acc=4, error=13

Yikes!

Any ideas?
