I received the following error today...
CONFIG: timeout - Timeout table overflow (NCALL = 30 exceeded).
Last night I removed 5 SCSI drives from an Adaptec 1540B
controller and added a Compaq 32bit Fast Wide EISA controller with 6
SCSI Fast Wide drives. I retained the IDE boot drive in this system
and reloaded from tape the filesystems that were on these drives.
Anyway it has been a while since I have seen this error on any of our
UNIX systems and now can't seem to find what this parameter is used
for. I know I can use idtune or configure to adjust the NCALL setting
but I would like to know 'why' I need to increase this setting. Any
pointers to information would be greatly appreciated.
