I am setting up a new networker server on a Dell 2850 running RedHat ES
4 and 
Networker 7.2.2 using a Emulex LP9802-E HBA to an ADIC Scalar 10k with 
Pathlight 5000 SNC.  When issuing a "inquire" to probe the SCSI bus it's

extremely slow (8m3.693s) consistently.  RedHat sees all of the hardware
ok - 
library, changer, and 4 LTO1 drives.  This is an existing library being
by RedHat AS 2.1 just fine using a Qlogic Qla2200 HBA.  Topology is set
"Private Loop".

Any thoughts or help would be appreciated,
