Hi Everybody,

I posted this to the freebsd-scsi list a week ago but no-one has
replied, why I take the liberty of posting it here as well.

Sorry for bothering you, but if you have the time, I'd really appreciate
your comments on the following problem:

I've got a P3 system with an onboard Adaptec AIC-7899 SCSI Controller.

The system came with a "QUANTUM  ATLAS10K3_18_WLS Version: 020W" disk,
to which I've added two "SEAGATE  SX1181677LCV     Version: C00C" disks
to the same cable (using 80->68 pins converters).

The two Seagate disks run in a gmirror.

Disk activity seems to lock in periods with the above mentioned error
shown in the system log. The interval of these lock-ups seem to be
closely related to the amount of disk activity in the system.

I can see that you, at least intended, to look at a seemingly similar
problem last january, ref:
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-scsi/2005-January/001662.html

Where a user downgraded a driver. Is there a fix available for it now,
if I i.e. upgrade to 6.1-RELEASE?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Here's an excerpt from the system log during one of those lock-ups.
