Problem with adaptec 2940AU and HP Brio

Problem with adaptec 2940AU and HP Brio

Post by malc.. » Sat, 07 Oct 2000 04:00:00



Hope someone can help me out here, we are trying HP, adaptec and SCO
support.

I've tried using the bootstring to set the alad(0,0,5,0) didn't think
this was applicable but it was worth a go.:-<

       We are trying to set up some SCO Unix 5.0.2 systems. We set them
up using a Master Tape created with Microlite Backup Edge. We then restore
this tape to the new system, setting up the disk geometry as we go.
We then re-licencse the SCO and register with the listed hardware.
        We have previously set up over 100 other systems on  HP Vectra's,
with no trouble. We now have a problem when trying to set up a HP BRIO
BA600 with a PIII Coppermine 700Mhz processor.
        The problem appears to be associated with the Adaptec 2940AU SCSI
Card (bios 1.34.2) which is used to drive a DAT tape, (but not the hard
disk which is EIDE).

        When the system boot's both from floppy and after a restore
booting from the hard disc, SCO runs 'F alad_init' the system promptly
kernel panics

        In my experience this is due to the SCSI card not being detected,
however the SCSIselect utility appears and it can see the DAT drive.

        However if the same machine is booted with an adaptec 2910 card the system
boot's fine ( both from floppy discs and hard disc )

        If A 2940AU card is inserted into the brio for the first time, then the
system is
booted using recoveredge discs, the Kernel boots succesfully and then
the system can
be installed from the tape onto the hard disc.

        When the system is then booted from the hard disc after the install is
complete
a kernel panic ensuses, and the system cannot be booted from
recoveredge. This has happened
on two separate machines with different SCSI cards (same model though).
Again the 2910
can still be used, just not a 2940AU.
        No BIOS changes are made to the system between the system booting into
recover edge
using the floppy discs and the system being booted from the hard disc
and kernel panic'ing

        Disabling the serial and the parallel ports, seemed to make no difference,
or setting them to auto.

We ran DiagTools (rev 2.10) downloaded of the HP website and this
displayed a motherboard Error, with or without the adaptec 2940 card,
the attached file is with the adaptec 2940 card and gives details of all
hardware.

I believe the "E" at the end means there is a memory problem.

This is a guess,
 You stated that the system will work with the 2910 but NOT the
 2940.  If this is the case, I am guessing that you need to take the
 2910 driver out of the kernel (the one that is used to boot) and
 replace it with the 2940 driver.  The problem is, I do not know
how this is done.

Maybe someone else in this newsgroup can expand on switching drivers in
the kernel.

Sorry I could not be of more assistance,

Brian

 
 
 

Problem with adaptec 2940AU and HP Brio

Post by Scott Neugrosch » Sat, 07 Oct 2000 04:00:00


Unfortunately, both the 2910 and the 2940 use an alad driver.  Brian may
have it right when he commented on the type E fault (page fault in the
kernel).
You might have bad memory.  I hate to suggest this, but you might want
to try
replacing your DIMMs.

Another 2940 panic I ran across on a recent install was fixed by
disabling the "Reset scsi bus on initialization" option in the
card's Bios.

Malcom,

I would point out some of the information from below in your post that
I am bringing up (above the line) for reference.

1) The diagnostics say the real time clock is failing, there is an interrupt
   failure, the CPU speed is 450MHz, and the motherboard is bad.

   The validity of the diagnostics test I can't measure. If correct,
   well, you've got a bad motherboard. And possibly a re-stamped CPU.

2) The Adaptec Web site says that your host adapter (2940AU) has a problem
   with Intel SE440BX-2 motherboards. Do you know what the HP MB is based on?

3) You can turn the bios OFF on the 2940AU if it just controls a tape drive.

4) Try booting with...
   defbootstr scsi.noscan Stp=alad(0,0,5,0)

   scsi.noscan might not have been available until 5.0.4.
   It tells Unix not to look for hard drives on the 2940AU.

5) Why 5.0.2? It's an old OS with old versions of drivers, including alad.
   Does the same scenario fail if you use 5.0.5 or 5.0.6?

Good Luck

Tom

Hope someone can help me out here, we are trying HP, adaptec and SCO
support.

I've tried using the bootstring to set the alad(0,0,5,0) didn't think
this was applicable but it was worth a go.:-<

       We are trying to set up some SCO Unix 5.0.2 systems. We set them
up using a Master Tape created with Microlite Backup Edge. We then restore
this tape to the new system, setting up the disk geometry as we go.
We then re-licencse the SCO and register with the listed hardware.
        We have previously set up over 100 other systems on  HP Vectra's,
with no trouble. We now have a problem when trying to set up a HP BRIO
BA600 with a PIII Coppermine 700Mhz processor.
        The problem appears to be associated with the Adaptec 2940AU SCSI
Card (bios 1.34.2) which is used to drive a DAT tape, (but not the hard
disk which is EIDE).

        When the system boot's both from floppy and after a restore
booting from the hard disc, SCO runs 'F alad_init' the system promptly
kernel panics

        In my experience this is due to the SCSI card not being detected,
however the SCSIselect utility appears and it can see the DAT drive.

        However if the same machine is booted with an adaptec 2910 card the system
boot's fine ( both from floppy discs and hard disc )

        If A 2940AU card is inserted into the brio for the first time, then the
system is
booted using recoveredge discs, the Kernel boots succesfully and then
the system can
be installed from the tape onto the hard disc.

        When the system is then booted from the hard disc after the install is
complete
a kernel panic ensuses, and the system cannot be booted from
recoveredge. This has happened
on two separate machines with different SCSI cards (same model though).
Again the 2910
can still be used, just not a 2940AU.
        No BIOS changes are made to the system between the system booting into
recover edge
using the floppy discs and the system being booted from the hard disc
and kernel panic'ing

        Disabling the serial and the parallel ports, seemed to make no difference,
or setting them to auto.

We ran DiagTools (rev 2.10) downloaded of the HP website and this
displayed a motherboard Error, with or without the adaptec 2940 card,
the attached file is with the adaptec 2940 card and gives details of all
hardware.

1. Adaptec 2940AU problems

I recently purchased an Adaptec 2940AU adapter for my system and am
having problems getting Linux to see it. I am using the Adaptec 2940
boot diskette but it does not report my SCSI setup.  I have a quantum
3.2 GB Ultra SCSI-3 drive hooked up to the 2940.  I also have a Mitsumi
12x IDE CD-ROM drive hooked to the M/B. Does the standard 2940 boot disk
support the 2940AU? I didn't see any mention of it. I am using a Pentium
Pro 180 on the Intel Venus M/B. 64MB RAM, and a SoundBlaster 32PnP. Is
this not going to work?
