Could you capture the kernel output when probing your esp0, the scsibuses and
devices and post it here?
I have the same problem with a Sun4m and 1.6.1 and a particular hard
drive. I ended up disabling disconnect/reselect and synchronous
negotiation for its SCSI target in the kernel with:
esp0 at dma0 flags 0x0303
I was not able to work on this any more, but I wondered if it wasn't due
to a firmware "strangeness" in the drive, as another drive on the same
machine didn't have this problem. The drive in question probes as:
sd0 at scsibus0 target 1 lun 0: <UNISYS, U1545 ST12550N, 2809> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
This is really a rebadged, refurbed Seagate. The same drive, but one
probing as a true Seagate, didn't have this problem [as best as I can
remember]. This drive did work in an IPX without any trouble, however.
