Link to this post 16 Jul 09

Dear All,

I have two machine running RedHAT Linux and attached to EMC SAN storage and running an oracle cluster active active. Yesterday, One of the machine was down
due to power fluctation. This is multiprocess machine model 6800 power edge and using (REDHAT ENTERPRISE LINUX AS (2.4.21-37.ELsmp) ) Kernal by default.
the machine gets hang on stuff below. It seems to me a HBA driver loading problem. But when i use different kernel (REDHAT ENTERPRISE AS-UP (2.4.21-37.EL))
it boots the machine and attache to storage. But i cannot run my oracle cluster stuff on it becasue the kernel should be (REDHAT ENTERPRISE LINUX AS (2.4.21-37.ELsmp) )
Please help me how can i pass thorugh the booting process using kernal (REDHAT ENTERPRISE LINUX AS (2.4.21-37.ELsmp) ) . Please find below the error detail
when using kernel ELsmp.

error message detail

Did you read the syslog and dmesg output? Either way; as per that error message you need to do that as well as check the modules.conf and modinfo to see what parameters can be are and can be used.

You are right. It is the fabric card's driver. I take it by the lpfc module you are running emulex cards. The best thing would be to grab the latest drivers from emulex and recompile for the kernel you want (2.4.21-37.ELsmp).
