"SCSI error: <0 0 0 0> return code = 0x70000"


I receive the following message at boot time, "SCSI error: <0 0 0 0> return code = 0x70000". Yet all SCSI devices seem to work. Anyone know of where to look to find out what is causing this error?

This error occurs on a recent install of Red Hat Enterprise ES version 4. The hardware is an IBM x236 with ServeRAID 7k and an additional Adaptec U320 controller card.

No idea what that one is myself. I went to http://www.google.com/linux and search the string you have in your post and see many on the subject. Check that out.

There should be a device just before the error you mention. Check to see which device it is.

Thank you for responding.

That is the odd thing. Most of the errors I've seen of this type are followed by some type of IO error. I don't see that here. The closest device is the tape drive. It works fine. I've done test backups and restores using this system.

What device uses scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0?
Look earlier in the log, than you have posted.

It may not be the case here, but an often overlooked cause for problems on Red Hat Servers is that the configuration file that is read for a program or device to function properly has the wrong SELinux context and can't be read. I hope I explained that correctly. I'm not an SELinux expert.

Sorry, I didn't know if it couldn't be the controller or the ServeRaid7k card.

Thanks to both of you for responding to my question.

It appears that smartd is causing this error. Smartd tries to monitor logical drive /dev/sda, but fails. It logs the following error.

Device: /dev/sda, BAD IEC (SMART) mode page, err=5 skip device


Anyway, I don't really see the need to run smartd considering I have IBM ServeRAID Manager installed and working.

Thank you,

Was the sda the sata drive? If so there may be issues with those new drives with smartd monitor. It works fine for most IDE drives. I would disable the smartd daemon.

/dev/sda is the logical drive setup on the ServeRAID 7k SCSI controller. You are probably correct in that smartd may not be able to monitor that type of drive or perhaps /etc/smartd.conf has the wrong configuration for that type of drive.

I will do some searches and review man smartd.conf. However, in the meantime I have disabled smartd.

Thank you,

Some scsi drives also support smart but limited. It never really took off from what I know of.

May be this

May be your issue is, device entry as SCSI but underlying disks are ATA disks on a 3ware or such. This can be fixed by specifying the device type.

For example:
/dev/sda -a -d ata
/dev/sdc -d 3ware,0

When you run the smartctl from shell prompt,

smartctl -H /dev/sdc -d 3ware,0

Information about the driver and disks in your system can be found at /proc/ide/ and /proc/scsi/ etc.

Double check that there's no other scripts or plugins that uses the smartctl command.

Anyone have any problems with Dell PowerEdge 1900 and a Perc 5/i (integrated SAS RAID controller) and smartd? I cant get it to work I get the following errors.

smartd - Bad IEC (smart) mode page err=-5

Even with DEVICESCAN.

My CDROM is detected as /dev/hda and I have some /media/cdrom and /media/cdrom1 as virtual devices and crap.

Im using CentOS 4.4 x86_64

Dell PowerEdge 1900
Intel XEON 64bit Dual Core 2x2mb
Dual 320 SAS Drives
2GB DDR2 ECC

I have SAS RAID drivers from dell I havent installed yet cuz im having the shittiest time. Tried using the DKMS and then the RPM and it didnt work, said it couldnt find my source for my kernel.

Any ideas would be helpful

I just purchased a Dell PowerEdge 2900, which is very similar to a PE1900. I'm experiencing the same issue with CentOS 4.4. smartd refuses to start both on system startup and when invoked manually. Here follows a rough summary of the server specifications,

(2) 1.6Ghz Quad-core Xeon 1066Mhz FSB
(4) 146GB SAS 3.5" 15K Hard drive
(4) 2GB 667Mhz Dual Ranked Fully Buffered DIMMS
(1) PERC 5/i configured for RAID 10

The technical specifications, for the hard drives, can be found here,
http://193.128.183.41/home/v3__produ...0&inf=fsp&wg=0

The error in /var/log/messages is as follows,
[root@bigdog ~]# service smartd start
Starting smartd: [FAILED]
[root@bigdog ~]# tail /var/log/messages
Apr 3 16:37:35 bigdog smartd: smartd startup failed

Apr 3 16:38:08 bigdog smartd[30205]: Unable to register SCSI device /dev/sda at line 30 of file /etc/smartd.conf
Apr 3 16:38:08 bigdog smartd[30205]: Unable to register device /dev/sda (no Directive -d removable). Exiting.
Apr 3 16:38:08 bigdog smartd: smartd startup failed
[root@bigdog ~]#

I'm not very experienced with smartd. From what I can gather, this utility is used to detect potential failures before they occur. If smartd is not needed for post-failure recovery of an array then I'd feel safe just removing it from chkconfig...

Even so, any thoughts on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
