Having this issue go on sometimes. Sometimes after a reboot it doesn't show up but sometimes it does. 

May 29 21:39:23 Tower kernel: i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: SMBus is busy, can't use it!
May 29 21:41:54 Tower kernel: i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: Timeout waiting for interrupt!
May 29 21:41:54 Tower kernel: i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: Transaction timeout
May 29 21:41:54 Tower kernel: i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: Failed terminating the transaction
May 29 21:41:54 Tower kernel: i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: Transaction failed
May 29 21:41:54 Tower kernel: i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: SMBus is busy, can't use it!

This then stops and doesn't happen again while the server remains on, only after reboots. Currently running 6.5.2. Followed all instructions before upgrading.

Anyone ever find a solution to this? I've got this message filling my logs and it makes looking at them near useless. SuperMicro mobo, IPMI plugin up and running. I get temps and fan speeds fine near as I can tell. I've seen mention that IPMI may have something to do with this but was wondering if anyone had solved this. Mobo comes up as: Supermicro - X9DRi-LN4+/X9DR3-LN4+

I've had this happen even on the latest 6.6.6. I've watched it and it only really occurs if the array isn't started, or shortly after the array is started. After that it stops spamming. I never really figured it out but it doesn't seem detrimental.

Oh I SO wish that was the case! 😮

Snippets of the syslog usually do not help, that is why the troubleshooting FAQ says to post full diagnostics zip file.
