Re: [dm-devel] Dell MD3200 - sd: Current: sense key: Illegal Request ASC=0x94 ASCQ=0x1ASC=0x94 ASCQ=0x1



I have looked at your logs.. Here are the messages..

These messages are coming  because of Synchronize Cache commands.  It may be related to type of filesystem you are on. Did you have barrier enabled on your filesystem. 
I see that these commands are going out to target on passive paths.. I dont understand that part yet. Normally scsi device handlers block commands going out passive paths..This should be coming in a differrent path.. I still have to figure that out..

I'll look into this next.

I have used "rescan_dm_devs" before. This did not eliminate the pseudo
LUN 0.

I did manage to get rid of them, though, by un-mapping and re-mapping
the array virtual disks as LUNs 0 & 1, instead of LUNs 1 & 2. The
current array profile is here: http://tinypaste.com/64eebb

lsscsi now looks good. See http://tinypaste.com/3580a

Unfortunately, this did not help with the "Illegal Request" messages.

The latest syslog is here: http://tinypaste.com/87516

The LUNs are each assigned to their own SCSI controller. Both LUNs (PVs)
are members of a single VG. The LVs are striped across the PVs, thus
allowing both paths to be used. The "lvdisplay -m" output is here:
