My problem was with my backup server being FreeBSD and running AMANDA. The Powervault autoloader was generating SCSI errors. After I setup AMANDA on Linux and got the same errors, they were willing to replace the Powervault autoloader. With the new autoloader in place, I replaced the Linux OS with the same instance of FreeBSD I was using before. No more SCSI errors. All of this took more time than it should have.
I can't start to tell you the time I and another collegue wasted with Dell Support (we're talking Gold Queue here) on a Powervault PV660T. Logs here, logs there, exercise this, reflash that... I think the damn thing must have been replaced part by part about 2 times, excluding the chassi! And having to reboot a bunch of (Windows) clusters because of the PV was the icing on the cake! This coating was perfomed many times.... At a certain point in time we upgraded the PV from 4 to 6 loaders. It took Dell 3 wrong scsi cables to finally send the right one. -- Joao Barros _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
