We have an HP Proliant ML150 Xeon server running Red Hat Enterprise (ES?)
Using an Adaptex 2010s Raid controller with 2 36MB SCSI drviers in a Raid 1 array.
The system has been crashing with a file system error whenever we attempt to run a backup with BackupEdge or copy a large file off the server (including FTP transfer).
I figure the problem is either a faulty Raid controller or faulty hard drive. Since this is a Raid 1 array, a faulty HD shouldn't bring down the system, so I started with switching the Raid controller.
I replaced the 2010s (bios 4.0) with another 2010s (bios 4.2) and rebooted. The new controller identified a "foreign" raid 1 array, status "Build/Verify" and asked that I accept that config. I did.
The system booted to the login screen, then froze. After a couple reboots I managed to switch to a shell login (ctrl-alt-f1) before the lockup and saw this error being repeated across the screen:
QUEUE 6 FULL, 0 OUTSTANDING
A Google search found this article:
www . redhat . com/archives/taroon-list/2005-January/msg00253.html
about a similar raid controller causing this error when the array is not optimal. The author suggests upgrading the AACRAID (module? driver?) to solve the problem.
I've looked, and I can't find this anywhere - I'm running 1.1.5-2361 and I'm guessing there are later versions available somewhere. I downloaded what I thought was a newer version from the Adaptec site, but the download was an ".img" file that didn't contain any aacraid modules. Even if it did, I know nothing about compiling (if necessary) or inserting / upgrading / replacing ... this type of thing.
I need help:
1) Finding the latest aacraid version
2) Doing whatever is necessary to install it
I'd be very grateful!
Thanks in advance.
