I am getting this error:-
3w-9xxx: scsi0: ERROR: (0x03:0x0104): SGL entry has illegal
length:address=0x3744A000, length=0xFF, cmd=X.

In dmesg it finds the controller OK:-

3ware 9000 Storage Controller device driver for Linux v2.26.02.001.
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:01:06.0[A] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
scsi0 : 3ware 9000 Storage Controller

SCSI device sda: drive cache: write back, no read (daft)
sda: sda1 sda2
Attached scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0

Any clues ?

It is a Centos 4.2 I386 system (fully updated) and it appears to be working
with no problems except this error.
(The controller has 6 x 80Gbyte 7200 SATA drives attached in raid 5 config)

Thanks

Denis

    This is known issue - it's not a problem.
    If you wish to get rid of it - use 3ware's own driver as opposed to the
    one within the kernel.

    Yes, always update the 3w-9xxx driver (9000 series) from the 3Ware
    releases -- ensure the firmware, driver and 3DM2 all match.

    For the most part, the older 3w-xxxx driver (6000-8000 series) is the
    latest, and works with the latest firmware releases -- with all recent
    RHEL3/4 kernels. The 3w-xxxx driver (6000-8000 series) has been
    stable/proven for years now.
