Buslogic BT946C Tape Hangs - what is 0x00000030? - SCO

Greetings. I'm working with a Dell Pentium system running: System = SCO_SV Release = 3.2v5.0.4 KernelID = 97/05/07 Machine = Pentium Pro BusType = ISA Users = 16-user Origin# = 1 NumCPU = 1 It's got an IDE primary drive, and a TECMAR TRAVAN NS8 tape drive connected to a Buslogic BT946C PCI Scsi Controller. Over the last few months backup has been erratic. Frequently the backup (using Lone Tar) hangs - the tape drive light is still flashing, the following message appears... %fpu - 13 - unit=1 type=80387-compatible %pci 0x0CF8-0x0CFF - - am=1 sc=0 buses=3 %serial 0x03F8-0x03FF 4 - ...

    Default Buslogic BT946C Tape Hangs - what is 0x00000030?

    Greetings.

    Machine = Pentium Pro

    It's got an IDE primary drive, and a TECMAR TRAVAN NS8 tape drive
    connected to a Buslogic BT946C PCI Scsi Controller.

    Over the last few months backup has been erratic. Frequently the backup
    (using Lone Tar) hangs - the tape drive light is still flashing, the

    And nothing on earth can kill off the Lone-Tar job, or anything else
    attempting to access the tape drive. Only a reboot.

    My research indicates Buslogic the company is Kaput. I'm not getting
    anywhere at figuring out what that error (0x00000030) is telling me.

    I'm thinking it might be more time/cost efficient to chuck the BT946C
    for a new adaptec, simply to get support.

    Unless anyone can shed some light on this.

    Hello Neal,

    This apprears to be a problem with either the buslogic controller or possibly
    the tape drive since the message is reporting the scsi ID of the tape.

    Have you tried contacting our support department?

    We are more than happy to help out, so please feel free to contact us.
    The LONE-TAR Technical Support Sheet is very helpfull. You can send it
    to either com or to com.

    Considering it's a Travan drive my first guess would be a drive
    problem. I've used a great many BusLogic controllers and never
    had a problem. There were some of the best made and BL and DTP were
    the only companies that kept things consistant to that one driver
    fit all their cards.

    However your research must have a flaw in it, or you didn't try the
    right combination in the search engines as you can get Buslogic
    drivers even today for the OSes that were extant when the cards
    were made.

    Buslogic was bought by Mylex which was bought by IBM and in
    September 2002 were bought by LSI.

    Goto www.lsilogic.com and browse from there.

    Manual for all the cards are there in PDF.
