I've seen a couple posting searching the FreeBSD question, stable, and current mailing list so this is probably just a "me too" posting....

The following is a snippet from "dmesg" as of the last reboot:

Note: vinum is not being used even though it's loaded.

The Promise SATA drives are configured as RAID0 through the controller and work perfectly, even dumped my entire file server (~120gb) without a problem.
The Intel SATA drives are configured as RAID0 through "atacontrol" and is unable to handle a dump of my file server OR and rsync from the local Promise RAID0 array.

All failures I experience are the same, a complete system hang with either ad10 or ad12 and a message like the following:

Instance #1
ad10: TIMEOUT_WRITE_DMA retrying (2 retries left) LBA=191

Instance #2
ad12: TIMEOUT_WRITE_DMA retrying (2 retries left) LBA=66491231

Once the error occurs the machine is frozen and requires a reset in person and I have also observed the IDE h/d light on the case is on solid. All attempts to disable Hyper-Threading result in the machine not shutting down properly when a reboot is performed.

The situation occurs with both a generic and custom kernel. Finally, the BIOS was updated to v1016 from ASUS prior to FreeBSD being installed.

Is there a bug report already filed for this issue or has it been corrected in a "current" release?


ps: In all my years of using FreeBSD since v2.2.7 this is the first problem I've ever encountered, yes I know v5 isn't "production quality" but its been serving me well since the v5.1 and this is the machine which will be replacing a v4.9 on Intel P2 hardware.
