Thanks Mike,

We are definitely hitting some similar issues again, so I will be sure
to forward this off to Oracle and Dell.

I think there was a bug in RHEL 5.1 and 5.0 where the initiator was 
sending pdus with cmd sequences out of order and the EQL box would drop 
the session. So if are not seeing ping/nop messages, then you might be 
hitting that problem. It is fixed in RHEL 5.3. Is there a Oracle release

based on that you can try? Or can you just use RHEL kernels? If so then 
you might want to try this one:
