Disk mystery


Today morning i got an error event logged through insight manager, when i had a closer look it said that the Drive1 on Port2 of the Storage Works was dead.. but surprisingly in the next 5 hours the disk seemed to came back to life and the status appeared as OK.. can anyone explain this..

Re: Disk mystery

Using Insight Manager, drill down on the drive and look at the error statistics.

It could be a contact problem with the drive, so reseating would work.
