I have an RHEL4 system with an LSI MegaRaid SCSI Card. After a reboot yesterday, the megaraid utils megamgr and megarc no longer work.
Code: [ Select ]
./megarc -AllAdpInfo -nolog

  1. ./megarc -AllAdpInfo -nolog

and when running megamgr to get the ncurses utility it says
Code: [ Select ]
Failed to Know Fw type
Press Any key to Continue.
  1. Failed to Know Fw type
  2. Press Any key to Continue.

followed by
Code: [ Select ]
Error Performing Adapter Enquiry.
Press any key to continue..
  1. Error Performing Adapter Enquiry.
  2. Press any key to continue..

Code: [ Select ]
No Adapters Found.
Press any key to exit.
  1. No Adapters Found.
  2. Press any key to exit.


The disks are still accessible, the driver modules are loaded otherwise the disks wouldn't be accessible.

/proc/devices shows the megadev device and I have the /dev/megadev0 device as well.

This all worked until the machine reboot yesterday and I haven't changed anything. I've even redownloaded megamgr and I get the same result.

I'm out of ideas, anyone?

Do all the devices show in dmesg or whatever the equivalent command is on your system?

yes, but thank you so much for reminding me about dmesg, it's showing at the end:
Code: [ Select ]
megaraid cmm: controller cannot accept cmds due to earlier errors

hundreds of times over.

I'll have to contact the server supplier.
