[TriLUG] SCSI Timeout: kernel? hardware?
Tue, 19 Feb 2002 13:01:33 -0500
I feel your pain. I built a RAID 5 Array using a batch of bad IBM SCSI
drives (well I didn't know they were bad at the time!). Two drives on the
RAID died within a few hours of each other and crashed the whole RAID...
Also, I'm not a big fan of DELL's hardware. Does this particular box use a
real SCSI card or a modified stripped down Adaptec DELL proprietary one?
The bastards need their own proprietary drivers. Using the standard driver
will not do...
