Re: XFS , QLA2200 and SMP
Pardon me for not seeing this earlier. have you created a debug qlogic
driver? 6.06.10 prefferably. Also, are you using and ql2xopts in your
modules.conf? Just curious. Some older versions may be messed up if you
haven't re-written them. Also, tried moving the qlogic card to another
slot? We have many systems here with dual 2200s and 2300s in failover,
we've had our issues, but overall they continue to work and we do
hundreds of GB of IO or more per day.
