It just isn't my week.
I just upgraded the HD on my main server, (here is the info from the

Ever since upgrading the hard drive, and SCSI controller, this machine is
rebooting itself at least once per day.
There is no error messages being recorded in the log, so I am at a loss as
to what might be causing this problem.
If anyone can shed some light on this, it would be apprecieated.
I have found some information on using camcontrol to turn off WCE and
tagging. It made no difference, the machine rebooted itself at 2:30am this
morning anyways. I also found several references that this problem seems to
be associated uniquly with this hardware.
What recommendations do all you FreeBSD users have for something in a 9G
SCSI 160 that can acctually attain 160M transfers, and will work well with
FreeBSD (I still have time to return this drive and controller, and replace
it with something else.)
