    SCSI Errors after upgrading to 1.0.4 on Debian Etch

    haary Novice

       

      Hello,

       

       

      after upgrading from VMWare Server 1.0.3 to 1.0.4 on Debian Etch I had serious errors in VMWare guests.

       

       

      The Guests are running Debian Etch too.  They have one SCSI disk image with BusLogic adapter.

       

       

      On boot I get strange errors:

       

       

      sdb: READ CAPACITY failed

       

       

      sd: current:  sense key: illegal request 

       

       

      Additional sense: Invalid command operation code

       

       

      sd: 0:0:1:0  scsi: device offlined - not ready after recovery

       

       

      sd 0:0:1:0  SCSI error: return code 0x00030000

       

       

      sdc: spinning up disk ....

       

       

      And there it hangs for a while.

       

       

       

       

       

      Strange is, that there is only one scsi disk configured. Why the kernel is suddenly "seeing" sdb and sdc I don't know. After downgrading to 1.0.3  everything works fine again, the kernel is correctly seeing only sda again.

       

       

      Below is a sample vmx file

       

       

      Regards,
