Adaptec HBAs and Seagate drives have a long and intensely painful
history of not working well together. Adaptec blames Seagate.
Seagate blames Adaptec. Throw in the myriad of subtly different AIC
controllers that are commonplace on 1U and 2U rackmount servers, and
things get even more entertaining.
You essentially have 3 options
1) replace the HBA -- somewhat difficult to do if it's embedded and
you need the PCIX slots for something else.
2) replace the drives -- IBM/Hitachi are fine choices here. Make
sure to tell whomever you purchase systems from that you'll not
accept Seagate drives in the future.
3) inside the adaptec bios, drop the drives to U160 speed, making
sure that *both* packetizing *and* QAS are turned OFF. You'll lose a
little bit of performance (but not all that much, Seagate drives
really are garbage), and get some semblance of stability.
