update to 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 and firewire disk not found

Post by kmcq » 2009/03/17 01:14:14

I had installed Centos 5.1 2.6.18-92.1.13 for RAC testing using a modification of Jeff Hunter's Article, Cluster had been working fine for months. Just recently updated and now the Firewire disk is not recognized.

Looked at some of the other posts and no help.

I am trying to stay as vanilla as possible, so kernel is NOT centos-plus as other post have had issues with.

My question now is what can I do ?

Option 1 -

Revert to 5.1 which may require re-install

Option 2 -

If there is there a go forward path for 5.2 get this working

Option 3 -

Wait for 5.3 if this fixes the issue

In my research found that the ieee1394 driver was updated and the release notes for 5.3 suggest that it was broken in 5.2.

I apologize if this is not the right forum for hardware issues, but since this configuration was driven by Oracle RAC requirements thought that this group would have similar issues and concerns.


If nothing more than to warn others that 5.1 works and 5.2 does not for firewire RAC config.

:-(

This is a test box so, not an urgent issue.

Can't you just boot the old kernel?

Tried going back on one box, but may have corrupted thing.

Boxes are Adam/Eve

ADAM is go forward box. EVE is still pretty much untouched.

Question is how far back and what else has changed.

from grup booting EVE with -13 kernel still does not find firewire disk
:-?

Boot the kernel you were running before the upgrade.

More Info

Adam - Box Installed OLE 5.3 - No luck

Upgraded Adam to 2.6.18-128.0.0.0.2 - Oracle Patch - No luck

Upgraded to -128.1 using http://centos.toracat.org/ajb/tmp/kernels/ - No Luck

Went back and Installed Centos from 5.1 DVD

Upgraded all modules , ended up with 2.6.18-92.1.22

Installed: ieee1394-kmdl-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 - 2.6.18-2.el5.i686 from ATRPMS

Back in Business - Sort of

Eve can mount the disk, but steals it from Adam - Multi-host driver not installed.

Will need be re-installing on Eve.


by the way

v.s.

Lots of extra stuff



Don't know if anyone else cares, but there are few references on web for this firewire config since Jeff Hunter moved to iSCSI for RAC.


The firewire technology works, but not hard to maintain. Sigh ...

Re: update to 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 and firewire disk not found

Post by toracat » 2009/03/19 10:00:38

From the last set of output, it looks like a kernel-independent version of the ieee1394 module has been installed on Eve but not on Adam. Can you run the following command on Eve and show us the output?

ls -l `find /lib/modules -name ieee1394.ko`

You will find symbolic links there. Also I'm curious to see the output of:

rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.22.el5/updates/drivers/ieee1394/ieee1394.ko

rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.18-92.el5/extra/ieee1394/ieee1394.ko

Re: update to 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 and firewire disk not found

Post by toracat » 2009/03/19 21:26:29

I am slowly beginning to understand your situation after seeing the output. You have installed:

Mar 15 12:02:19 Installed: kmod-ieee1394 - 1.0.0-1.el5.i686
Mar 15 12:06:02 Installed: ieee1394-kmdl-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 - 2.6.18-2.el5.i686

on [b]eve[/b]. But [b]adam[/b] has only the second one (kmdl). If firewire is working on [b]eve[/b], but not on [b]adam[/b] (is this correct?), then chances are that the driver from the first (kmod-ieee1394) is doing the job on [b]eve[/b]. I believe you have downloaded this from [b]Alan[/b]'s collection?

In any event, let's find out which driver is in use by issuing a command:

/sbin/modinfo ieee1394

on both machines. I also want to see the running kernel on both:

uname -mr

and it is ADAM that is working correctly now not EVE

Checking checking checking

thought that I had erased kmod-ieee1394 - 1.0.0-1.el5.i686 from EVE but had not.

did

rpm -e kmod-ieee1394

restarted - no luck

checked blacklist-firewire

had commented out the firewire line - removed comment

init 6 -

EVE is now working as well as ADAM

:-D
