I can't find it, but I believe we are running version 4.0.1 of the
Equallogic firmware, but we were originally running 3.3.1 and saw
problems with that version as well.

We originally saw these problems on Debian Etch, and they persisted
across our upgrade to Ubuntu Hardy.

We do have a support contract with them and were working on the issue
before. We had thought the problem went away when we moved from Etch to
Hardy. We're planning to get in touch with them again soon, but I'm not
the point of contact on that, so I've asked one of my project's
co-maintainers to do that.

Ok - I've moved all of the virtual machines off of one of our servers,
and it's currently running the latest tarball release of both the
kernelspace and userspace pieces with both debug options enabled.

Our biggest problem when we were trying to diagnose this with Equallogic
was that we didn't have a reliable way of generating the errors. They
don't seem to happen when there's no iSCSI traffic, but they also didn't
occur when we ran a program that generates rapid, random reads and writes.

I'd rather not put production VMs on this server while we're testing. Do
you have any theories on how we could trigger these connection errors,
if they're still occurring?
