I'm still seeing occasional problems. I can't find my previous posts either
(on stable probably).
Anyway, I have:
ST336607LW P/N 9V4005-002 firmware r=0006
(4x Vinum RAID10)
tags depth set to 31.
Seagate have released a new firmware revision. Can you send me your update
program. Thanks. Our ISP has strange mail filters you might need to send to
ianjhart AT yahoo DOT com
While I'm here... This is our (only) gateway so it doesn't get updated except
in dire need. I'm running a snapshot from July 31st. Have there been any code
changes since then. I had a browse in cvsweb, but I don't know what to look
Please CC me.
Thanks 2 all
