Hi everybody...
I've been using linux for a while but I'm experiencing troubles using my DAT. It is a HP 35470A (rev T603) connected to an Adaptec AHA 2920.
It is normally recognised during boot, but when I issue the command
tar cvf /dev/rmt0 /
the Dat begins working, but after a while it locks up and I get the
message
# scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 4031, scsi0, channel 0,
id 3, lun 0 Write (6) 00 00 28 00 00
fdomain: abort
Future Domain TMC-16x0 SCSI driver, version 5.44
scsi0 <fdomain>: BIOS version 3.?. at 0xc8000 using scsi id 7
scsi0 <fdomain>: TMC-36C70 (PCI bus) chip at 0x6000 irq 10
other (8), target = 3 cmnd = 0x0a pieces = 0 size = 10240
sent_command = 6, have_data_in = -1, timeout = 50
in_interrupt_flag = 0
IMR = 0x18f0, IRR = 0x0000, ISR = 0x0000
SCSI Status      = 0x01
TMC Status       = 0xf0 (interrupt)
Interrupt Status = 0x98 (enabled)
FIFO Status      = 0x08
Int. Condition   = 0x00
Configuration 1  = 0x85
Configuration 2  = 0x03

I've tried recompiling the kernel for using future domain chipset in SCSI kernel, but it hasn't changed anything...  Does anybody have the same problem ????
I've never used a DAT on linux before... Maybe, I made an error somewhere ...
Any help or advice would be great...
Thank You

Before you panic about the software, check your hardware, cables are specially sensitive, be sure your terminator is active, check every single pin in each cable. Get new, high quality cables.

How many devices you have? if you have other devices check termination only at both ends of your scsi chain.
