Now the machine, when it tries to check the two aacd volumes on this

so and the disk volumes cannot be used.  Each new IO attempt triggers a

different for each new IO request but of course stays the same for
repeated messages relating to the same original IO request


I have googled on this and similar posts related to 2120S controllers
all seemed to have different causes and fixes...

I thought that 5.2.1 would have fixed all of this. This isn't good.

Any hints or ideas on what is causing this?  I can get into the
controller at POST time and it checks out...

Can you boot the machine at all? If so, could I feed you some patches to help diagnose the problem?

Long time ago (humm 3 mounths ;-)) ) I've same problem with a Adaptec 2120S
on FreeBSD 5.2

The reconstruction don't work and sometime the machin hang up with same
kind of message.

I solve the problem (after many time) by to remove the SCSI terminator on
the array (where I put the hot-plug disk).

Hope this help.


Termination problems are the source of many many SCSI problems. You need to be very careful to make sure you understand exactly what the termination requirements are of the system. Most hot-swap enclosures have internal termination, so connecting a cable to them that is also terminated with cause problems, as you seem to have observed. Unfortunately, the 2200/2120 cards try really really hard to hide these problems and make them invisible.
