How can I get my Adaptec SCSI controller and Quantum SDLT recognized on RH?


Greetings,

I am trying to get my RH server to recognize a Quantum SDLT and not having much luck. I've searched this board for SDLT posts and have found them to be mostly from RH 7 or earlier (not sure that's the problem), and none of the threads' advice seem to help.

RH Kernel version: 2.4.20-31.9smp
SCSI controller: Adaptec 160
Tape Drive: Quantum SDLT320

'lsmod' shows the follwing:

Module Size Used by Not tainted
soundcore 7044 0 (autoclean)
ide-cd 35808 0 (autoclean)
cdrom 34176 0 (autoclean) [ide-cd]

ext3 73408 6

3w-xxxx 38048 7
sd_mod 13452 14
scsi_mod 110872 3 [st 3w-xxxx sd_mod]

...none of the mt -f /dev/st0 status work.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
Tony

What is the output of the command:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi

Does RH AS have a hardware detection GUI? If so does it show anything for the Adaptec controller or tape drive?

It appears that the the necessary SCSI modules are being loaded. The 3w-xxxx appears to be a SCSI module but I thought the Adaptec 160 uses the aic7xx module.

Michael,

The 3W-xxx controllers are for the SATA disks (this is a Teramaxx server). I tried loading the aic7xxx but think I may not have done it properly. I entered this: modprobe aic7xxx. Then if I do 'lsmod' it shows up, but as unused. I think I am probably missing a controller driver???

It does not appear that you are missing anything.
Since you loaded the module have you tried accessing the tape drive?
Does the command show your tape drive?
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
