Cause of disk DEVOFFLINE error?

» close window

The Question is:

What does the message "not in configuration" mean, when mounting a scsi-disk ?

The Answer is :

  The host software is not able to access the particular hardware.
  In this case, check the SCSI configuration, the SCSI termination,
  the SCSI bus length, the SCSI unit assignment, the system error
  log, the SCSI device firmware, and various other SCSI-related
  and I/O-related topics.
 DEVOFFLINE,  device is not in configuration or not available
  Facility:     SYSTEM, System Services
  Explanation:  For some device-specific reason, the associated driver is
                not available. If this message is associated with a status
                code returned by a request to a DMC11 interface, the device
                protocol is not started (read or write). The function is
                inconsistent with the current state of the unit (Set Mode).
                Or, possibly the device is not currently on line or the
                Ethernet protocol has not been specified.
  User Action:  In the first case, reenable or repair the device and retry
                the operation.
                In the second case, make sure the XE device has been
                configured as ONLINE. Also, make sure that all parameters
                in the QIO STARTUP request are supplied, including
