Hi,

we have:
PE1850, PERC 4e/Si
Redhat EL4 U5, Kernel 2.6.9-55.0.9.ELsmp
Ora10G R10.1.0.5.0 64bit

Megaraid drivers:
megaraid cmm: 2.20.2.6rh (Release Date: Tue Jan 16 12:35:06 PST 2007)
megaraid: 2.20.4.6-rh2 (Release Date: Wed Jun 28 12:27:22 EST 2006)

PERC FW: 522D

Oracle has async IO as well as direct IO enabled.

We run regularly RMAN backups and see the server then losing access to 
the Raid device.
There is nothing in the ESM Log but syslog via network gives this:

... and repeats...
