Hi,

Well, we've some messages in kernel logs each time the server boots up
which are :

(probe0:mps0:0:3:7): CAM status: CCB request completed with an error
(probe0:mps0:0:3:7): Retrying command
(probe0:mps0:0:3:7): INQUIRY. CDB: 12 e0 00 00 24 00
(probe0:mps0:0:3:7): CAM status: CCB request completed with an error
(probe0:mps0:0:3:7): Retrying command
(probe0:mps0:0:3:7): INQUIRY. CDB: 12 e0 00 00 24 00
(probe0:mps0:0:3:7): CAM status: CCB request completed with an error

In following post it is written that :

 these are due to a mismatch between firmware and driver version
<http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-scsi/2014-October/006505.html>.
FreeBSD
9 <http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/stable/9/sys/dev/mps/mpsvar.h?view=3Dco>; =
ships
with driver version 16 and FreeBSD 10
<http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/stable/10/sys/dev/mps/mpsvar.h?view=3Dco>;
includes
version 19. Linux
<https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/drivers/scsi/mpt2sas/mpt2sas=
_base.h>
currently
has version 18. So make sure that in step 11, you always flash the version
that matches your operating system=E2=80=99s driver version, don=E2=80=99t =
blindly go with
version P20 or the latest version

Here is the link to that Post :

=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

It looks like that it might be the issue of crash as we're using LSI-9211
controller and maybe due to mismatch between firmware and driver version
this crash occurs.
