SCSI bus parity error
Posted on 2008-06-19
Hi I have an old SCO Unix Server (OpenServer Release 5) and the other day, I tried to replace a damaged tape drive (HP DLT VS80) with a new model (HP DLT 160). Our machine has Compaq Ultra-2 Scsi and using the previously configured driver, i have the following error message and I cannot find the tape drive.
NOTICE: cha: SCSI bus parity error ha=1 id=5 lun=0 cmd=12 blk=0 len=96
The host detected a single bit error on the SCSI bus (chaN06)
For your information, the tape is recognized at Bios Level and can be detected using ScSI Scanning Tool at OS Level. But none of the devices can be used.
How can I troubleshoot this? I have experience in Linux but a bit cluless with this SCO thing.
Thanks so much for your time.
