    Subjectport multiplier problem
    Hi,

    I have a disk array of 12 disks. The interface card has two sil3726 port
    multiplier for 10 disks (5 disks in each port multiplier) and 2 direct
    sata connectors. The host controller is sil3124. It was connected to
    suse 10.4 and working fine.

    There was a high voltage accident (high voltage to disk array only, not
    computer) and because of that we replaced the power supply of this disk
    array. Now, we are getting some problem, disks are not being
    recognized,. So, I connected it to Fedora 12 (To correct if it is
    because of some bugs) with driver sil24. Here are few things that I have
    tested.

    1) If I connect only one disk to direct sata connector, it works fine.
    2) If I connect two disks to both direct sata connectors, it won't work.
    3) If I connect one disk to one direct sata and one disk directly to
    host controller, it works.
    3) If I connect one or more disk to PM, it won't work.
    4) If I connect one disk to direct sata and one to PM, it won't work.

    Below is the error from dmesg in case of failure:
