[dm-devel] w/o attachments Need some help - i/o errors HDS-USP/Qlogic/RHEL5. 1/

I've just been handed a Linux based system that is being used
as a IBM Tivoli TSM Server. I'm more a Solairs/AIX admin, so
please be kind :)

The person who configured it is no longer with us, and there is
no documentation.

The issue is with the SAN based storage that lives on a Hitachi / HDS
USP SAN. When a backup client writes to the SAN, I get I/O errors and
paths start dropping out, sometimes to the point where all paths have
be pulled off line, and the filesystem will then get corrupted.

I can read and write files all day, last weekend > 12 TB of them
with out a single I/O error. The errors only occure with TSM is backing
up a client. The difference that I can see is that when TSM writes it
does it across many files and such is more random.

I've had the motherboard replace, the HBA replaced. Tivoli/TSM generates
no errors, and the SAN/Director show no errors.

The setup 

Server HP DL585-Gen 1 (x86-64) and has RHEL5.1 on it. 

The HBA in question is a Qlogic QLA2342

The SAN is a HDS USP (OPEN-V)

There are 4 paths from the Director to the HBA, two physical with each
have 2 logical paths.

I've attached the output from the HP and QLogic analysis tools
