Ok. Now it is clear. I thought the port was disabled.

The rport failure in the log you sent made me think that it was a port
disable. Why was there a rport failure ?

Can you add these two lines at the top of
scsi_dn_rdac.c:rdac_check_sense() function, retest and send me the log.
------------
        sdev_printk(KERN_ERR, sdev, "sense_key:%x; asc %c; ascq %x\n",
                sense_hdr->sense_key, sense_hdr->asc, sense_hdr->ascq);
-----------
I want to see if we are getting any special sense that we are not
handling.
