    redhat with HP tape


    Hello



    I have a problem with HP MSL2024 Library with redhat Enterprise 4, ,kernel: Linux version 2.6.9-78.0.17.ELsmp
    tape is giving the below kernel errors on the system's messeges
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    kernel: st0: Error 70000 (sugg. bt 0x0, driver bt 0x0, host bt 0x7).
    kernel: st0: Error with sense data: Info fld=0x10000, Deferred st0: sense key Medium Error
    kernel: Additional sense: Write error
    kernel: st0: Error with sense data: Info fld=0xf4240, Current st0: sense key Medium Error
    kernel: st0: Error 70000 (sugg. bt 0x0, driver bt 0x0, host bt 0x7).
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    tape stops working unless you reboot the server, this happens 3 times in a week.
    any clue?

    I would check scsi cables, terminators, controllers.
    Maybe it helps to reduce the speed.

    It is possible to reset the scsi bus, so a reboot may not be required.

    Not neccessarily related, but benefical in general:
    rhes4 is quite old. Is it feasible to upgrade to rhes6?

    Edit:
    The MLS2024 seems to be fairly new. Honestly, I was expecting a scsi only.

    With that hardware, a OS upgrade seems even more desired.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
