Re: Fidre channel array

Thank for that.

I got the following.

server1:/tmp# dmesg | grep -i sd
server1:/tmp# dmesg | grep -i scsi
server1:/tmp# ls -l /dev/disk/by-path
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2008-11-08 07:33 pci-0000:00:0f.1-ide-0:0 ->

Now I have been doing a little more research into this. It seems I have
the Tachyon HPFC-5000 PCI card.

Current information tells me that support for this card stopped after
either kernel 2.4 or 2.2

Looks like I may have to roll my entire install back to a really old
version of deb or simply install RHEL5 or earlier. Something I wasn't
planning on, especially since the latest version of deb seems to be the
only linux distro that installs and runs properly on my old compaq
servers. On that basis I moved all my servers to deb (from windowz or FC).
This is the only server with Fibre. I am currently exploring the
possibility of changing the card. The arrays attached to the cards are old
series 4100 boxes.

If anyone has any comments or thoughts I would love to here them.
