I am getting intermittent read errors on two different sections
of my 4GB Baracuda wide scsi drive. But when I try to use
format to look for the problems, nothing shows-up. Has anyone
else seen this problem?
My configuration is as follows:
Solaris 2.5, on Intel
last ~3GB of the disk is used for Solaris
SCSI controller: Adaptec 2940
MB: Asus P6NP5 with 200MHz PP/256k secondary
Another confusion is with the details of the read errors I get:
In one case, "requested block: 6809068, Error block 6809168"
was on the first line of the error, then "cannot read
block 3077808" was on a later line of the same error.
what are these significantly different numbers, and why
does format only accept the 3077808 number as being in
Another funny thing is that the error claims that the
device vendor is "DEC", eventhough the drive clearly
has Seagate printed on the outside. Could this mean the
chipset is from DEC?
