SCSI COntroller or Drive Problems
Posted on 2005-03-25
Macine and OS Info:
IBM server with built-in Adaptec AIC-7896 Dual Channel SCSI controller. All hot-swap drive bays are full. Added an Adaptec 29160 Ultra 160 and connected two drives to it, SCSI IDs 2 and 3. Windows 2000 server, fully patched. Latest Adaptec drivers downloaded and installed from web.
The first thing I noticed was that the Disk Manager was not seeing the new HDDs. Upon examination of the Event Viewer, I am getting two messages related ot the Ultra 160 card.
"The device \Device\SCSI\adpu160m1, did not repond within the timeout period."
"A pending interupt was detected on device \Device\SCSI\adpu160m1 during a timeout operation."
Do I have a hardware issue, a configuration issue, or a Windows issue?
