Qlogic error observed on Redhat 4


Hi All,

We are running with the Redhat 4 update 6 on one of our Linux server. And currently i can see the below error messages in dmesg command output and in /var/log/messges.So can someone let me know is this indicate some problem from the SAN side or its false alarm.
Secondly what causes this alarm to generate and are they threatening.??
Thirdly currently we are planning to reboot the server so what precaution we should take against these error.

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-3775183.html Try looking here. I think he had the same problem. Doesn't look like he got it resolved though.

I can't seem to find anyone who solved this problem. Maybe ask at the developers mailing list?

https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/scst-devel

Wish I could help more.

Normally I would say ask red hat .

But with the only supported version of RHEL4 being 4.9 , and you are running 4.6 ...

I take it you do not have the "EXTRA extended support contract" for the 4 series .

there is a CLOSED bug report - fedora 8 but should be in the RHEL updates - if you installed the last 6 years of updates
this might not be an issue
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=329511

I would upgrade to the last rhel4 version
RHEL 4.9
but in about a year all support for rhel4 ends

As you've been told before in a few of your other threads, you need to contact Red Hat support, since you're PAYING for RHEL. As JohnVV pointed out, even now you're in a totally unsupported environment, probably due to your company NOT PAYING FOR RHEL, and not getting the patches/updates you need. If you're going to use Red Hat Enterprise, then you need to PAY FOR IT.

Chances are you're getting errors because your system is old, unpatched, and unupdated, and there is some sort of error in there. flyinggeorge pointed out some issues, but you also posted two OTHER threads about disk problems:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ux-4175471257/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ux-4175469073/

...and were told VERY explicitly to back up your data, replace the disk, and reload. This is STILL the best advice, especially given your old, outdated OS. So, PAY FOR the latest version of RHEL (6.x), and load it, or load the free version of CentOS, restore your data from backup, and move forward, after you replace the bad hardware.
