Disk going down or SCSI problem?

Disk going down or SCSI problem?

Post by Greg » Mon, 02 Mar 1998 04:00:00



Hi,
I am in the process of setting up a new Ultra2-2200 server, It has two
internal drives (it came with a 4 gig and I added a 9 gig) and an external
data silo with 3 9 gigs in it. I have just now started getting some read
error messages, but I am not entirely sure whether it's a disk fault or
S-bus problem. (All the new drives that I added were Seagates, and I
recall having problems with that bran before in a Sun). I was formatting a
text file and I got the error message that read:
---------------------------------------------------------------------

        Error for Command: read(10)                Error Level: Fatal
        Requested Block: 14745984                  Error Block: 14746019
        Vendor: SEAGATE                            Serial Number: LA860619    
        Sense Key: Media Error
        ASC: 0x11 (unrecovered read error), ASCQ: 0x0, FRU: 0xea
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Another time I accessed a personal web home page and got (?!)

---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. c0t1d0





Error Level: Fatal Requested Block: 14745984 Error
Block: 14746019 Vendor: SEAGATE Serial Number: LA860619 Sense Key: Media
Error ASC: 0x11 (unrecovered read error), ASCQ:
0x0, FRU: 0xea
--------------------------------------------------------------------
It looks most likely to be a couple of the new Seagates, but I'm surprised
to have two go down almost at once.
Any ideas?
Thanks
Greg

If the disk sends a FRU code != 0, it is most likely dead and must be replaced.

However, you may try to repair the block with "sformat"

It is the disk at target 4, so none of the internal disks.  And it
looks like this disk is dying soon, so get it replaced soon.  Should
fall under manufacturers warranty.

1. SCSI disk prob (linux has disk sping down)

I have a machine that boots off of an IDE disk.  I have a scsi card
(no bios) that works fine with linux.  I have a 414meg hitachi
(problem disk) and a 989meg Seagate.  On bootup, it detests both
drives, but as soon as it detects the Hitachi, I can hear the disk
spin down.  Then I get a message that says it is waiting for the disk
to spin up.  It will sit there forever.  If I remove that disk, the
machine won't boot, complaining of a fsck'ing error.

Please help
