Scsi? Error: Queue 6 full, 0 outstanding.

Ok, I am using an adaptec 2120S scsi raid card and a 3ware 7002 ide raid card on CentOS 3.5 (practically RHEL 3).

Sometimes, the O/s will just print "Queue 6 full, 0 outstanding." repeatedly and the server goes dead. Now it could be the scsi drivers, but what I would like to know is how to use new drivers instead of the old ones but not having to compile them into a new kernel.

I have to use the older CentOS 3.5 because plesk does not work with CentOS 4/4.1 (i tried and its not a case of changing /etc/redhat-release, its got a problem with libraries).

CentOS 4/4.1 work perfectly, so i'm assuming for the most part that its the older O/s and therefore the drivers. I assume the newer drivers will be on the 4.1 disks, but I don't know what they will be named (.img?) and where i can put them after i have found them for linux to use them instead.

Any help?

I'm having this exact same error message on RHEL 3.5.  If I don't partition and format the raid array within a couple of minutes from boot up I get that message over and over till it kills the OS and I have to do a hard reboot.  Its formatting a new 1TB partition this very instant...I hope it finishes and the issue goes away.

Now I know the kernel/aacraid driver that comes with RHEL 4 does not have this problem, so the latest kernel should do the trick, or just recompile the kernel with the latest aacraid driver.

Nope...it stopped not even half way through and the system is locked up.  I'm trying RHEL 4 update 1.  I hope it makes a difference.
