The "Red State Exception" error was because of a cpu failure on the Ultra1
and that caused all this problem. I changed the system board and now the
ultra1 is working normally and it sees all the scsi devices. Many thanks to
everybody who took the time to reply. Appreciate it :)

I connected a dumb terminal and it actually gave me the error "RED State
Exception" what does this mean?

Dear George,

Try this ...

1.First check whether any Scsi termination on the external tape device. 
If it so, just put the proper scsi termination to the external disk.

2. If you are sure the scsi termaination is fine, then boot the m/c. 

3. If you face the probelem still,then connect your system to a dump 
terminal through serial port of Ultra1. Find it out the problem as per 
the error message on the console.
