I was attempiting to restage a server last night to no avail. It is a Dell 860 with a LSI SAS (Dell SAS5/SI) controller.
This was happening when I was dumping the filesystems from a USB memory stick (da1s1) to the hard drive (Seagate 76 GIG SAS - da0s1).
Can anyone tell me if they have seen this before? or if it is a Hard disk problem, or a problem with the SAS controller, or is it a FreeBSD problem?
I ahve donwloaded the latest SAS firmware and installed it, ran the Dell 32 Bit diags, ran the drive diagnostics, etc etc and everything passes with no errors.
I simply cant install dumps, or install a fresh copy of freebsd.
I have snapshots of what the console iis showing, but in a nutshell:
(da0:mpt:0:0:0:0): Synchonize cahce failed, status =0x4a, scsi status = 0x0
(da0:mpt:0:0:0:0): removing device entry
Device /da0s1e went missing before all of the data could be written to it, expect data loss
I have snapshots if anyone wants me to send them off list.
Any possible resalutions ?
