I wrote about these problems two weeks ago.  After this we had done
lot of testing with this system and last 4 days system has been up and
running.  We still get scsi errors but it doesn't seem to harm system
drives.  Panic problem hasn't appeared since we changed mylex config.
Now we are running only 8 disks on two channels and one raid5 system
drive on both.  Any thoughts why this works better than the old
