|Title: ||aic7xxx module fails to detect devices (Adaptec 2940(u)w)|
Module aci7xxx fails detecting some devices (Adaptec 2940 controller)
Some device (e.g. HP-Dat streamer) that are connected to a ultra/-wide
Adaptec controller are not detected. During the
initializing phase of the aci7xxx you may face a message like this
SCSI: aborting command due to timeout: pid X scsi0, channel 0,
id X, lun 0, 0x00 00 00 00 00
aic7xxx: (abort_reset) scb state 0x01, Data-Out phase, SCSISIGI = 0x0
The Adaptec bios is not proper configured to handle SCSI-I/II devices.
Run the adaptec bios and switch the option Žinitiate wide negotiationŽ for
the affected device to ŽnoŽ (SCSISelect/Additional Options)
