Hi all

While trying to build a 2nd harddisk into my Indigo2
I experienced the following problems.
The bus is terminated correctly and with 2 m external
cable to my scsi case it also shouldn't be to long.
When I try to copy data from a harddisk to the other
I get weired I/O erros after some time of heavy I/O.
On the console I get something like:
cp: /mnt/redhat/kernel23/linux/arch/sparc/lib/COPYING.LIB: Input/output error

And dmesg shows:
attempt to access beyond end of device
08:03: rw=0, want=959546428, limit=1888830
attempt to access beyond end of device
08:03: rw=0, want=958585434, limit=1888830
attempt to access beyond end of device
08:03: rw=0, want=959546428, limit=1888830
attempt to access beyond end of device
08:03: rw=0, want=958585434, limit=1888830
attempt to access beyond end of device
08:03: rw=0, want=941858675, limit=1888830


Ususally the system is pretty unstable after these messages.

Also I'm getting a message
sc1,2,0: cmd=0x12 timeout after 2 sec.  Resetting SCSI bus
every time I restart my Indigo2 on the serial console -
does anyone know what that means and if it's a problem ?

Further more it happens that after heavy I/O a simple "sync"
needs more than one minute.

Has anyone seen the same or equal problems in any way
and/ was able to resolve these ?

        TIA, Klaus
