SUMMARY: Assertion fail in ctlr_scsi.c

Date: Fri Oct 30 1992 - 12:42:09 CST

Thanks for prompt and explicit responses. I suspect that I'll get lots
more replies - the list below are the "overnight" responses which all
state that this is a known problem and is fixed by patch

Patch-ID# 100474-01
Keywords: format 1.3 Gigabyte disk
Synopsis: SunOS 4.1.2: Assertion Failure on 1.3GB Elite Drive
Date: 16/Jan/92

The patch replaces the dud 'format' program that was released for sun4 kvm
with one that works for disks >1Gb.

My original query stated that I got this assertion failure on entering
'format' and selecting a 2.0Gbyte SCSI disk on a 4/470, although I had no
trouble doing this on an IPX.

Thanks to...
