I was trying to add 2 more scsi hard disks to our rs6000 workstation
(7006 Model 42t )which runs 4.1.4
The machine comes with 1 Gb hard disk and a CDROM drive placed
Now adding ONE disk placed externally has no problem. But when
a further disk is added to the chain, the disk was shown as
DEFINED and not AVAILABLE (under SMIT)
Doing the "Configuring Defined Disk" under SMIT failed with error
0514-049 Error getting VPD for a device
What does this imply ?
Note: I tested adding 2 disks placed externally to another RS6000
Model 25T running 3.2.5 (it got no CDROM drive) has no problem.
Could it be the internal CDROM that messed things up
