scsi5: Transmission error detected
again, as before, this can be the SCSI card, the cabling, or the target
device. It even could be a crappy terminator.
if your disk system is running at ultra320 speeds, you might go into the
controller BIOS, and set all targets for max 80M transfer/sec, which is
ultra160 speeds, and see if the errors persist. I've run into several
SCSI backplanes that are marginal at 160M xfer/sec (U320 speeds), but
work fine at U160 speeds.
