Looking at config of machine from another person (show conf in SRM):
SRM Console: X3.9-1387
ARC Console: 4.1-22
PALcode: VMS PALcode X5.48-87, OSF PALcode X1.35-57
Serial Rom: 1.3
Diag Rom: V1.1
DECchip (tm) 21064A-6 233Mhz 512KB Cache
64 Meg of System Memory
Bank 0 = 64 Mbytes(32 MB Per Simm) Starting at 0x0
Bank 1 = No Memory Detected
Bank 2 = No Memory Detected
Bus 00 Slot 06: NCR 810 Scsi Controller
pka0.7.0.6.0 SCSI Bus ID 7
I guess the error message you gave is for device 0000:00:06.0 that
happens to be scsi controller. :(
I can not say to for sure what cause this message, could it be resolved
(let say by module options or removing by cards from PCI).
May be others have some advice (Jay? :) ).
