megasas: fw in fault state!


I'm running sco 6 with a LSI 8888ELP controller. We had an LSI 8408E conntroler that crapped out on us, so we installed the new 8888ELP, figuring it would work OK because it uses the same driver as the 8408E. In addition, the previous config had 6 SAS drives, however I had to reduce the number of drives in the array to 4 because I did not have another cable.

Anyway, I restored using RecoverEDGE without issue, allowing it to reconfigure the slices as necessary...  but shortly after the OS started to boot, the following message appeared: megasas: fw in fault state!.

Thinking I may have a hardware issue, I did a fresh install of the operating system and it worked fine.

I really need to restore... is there any way of doing so without reinstalling the OS first?

Any help apprecaited. Thanks.

what do you want to restore and how backup was taken?
