SCSI Errors on Oracle Server



One of my Oracle servers is generating SCSI errors I cannot resolve.  I've 
googled the errors and found lots of questions but no answers.  The only 
common factor I've noticed is all the compliants seem to involve machines 
with SMP and software RAID on Adaptec controllers or tape drives.   

Anyways, does anyone know what causes these errors and how I can cure it?

Summary of configuration

Make and Model:		Dell PowerEdge 2650
Processors:	 		2 x 3.2Ghz Xeon Processors w/hyperthreading enabled
OS: 					Redhat AS 3.0
Kernel Version:			2.4.21-4.ELsmp
Main Software:			Oracle 9i
Boot and System Drives	2 X 146G SCSI Drive in software RAID 1.
Data Drives:			6 x 146G SCSI drives in software RAID 10 Array
