HP MSA2012fc - Disk channel error

Hi,

"Show eventlog" command is full of Controller A and B INFORMATIONAL messages. These messages contain Disk channel error.
The error code is I/O Timeout  cdb:030000001200.

I am worried about the number of messages

Do you think that it is good idea restart controller? Maybe events show something different. I am a little worried.

 

Thanks so much!

Re: HP MSA2012fc - Disk channel error

I looked the Event Descriptions Reference Guide msa2000.  Event  59 says:

 

Info. The controller detected a non-parity error while communicating with the indicated SCSI device. The error was detected by the controller, not the disk. Recommended actions • No action is required.

 

I also realized that the SN:3QP1QMLC00009934Q60C is the disk 0. However, the disk 0 does not appear in the array. I looked: show disks command and the disk 0 had disappeared . Then, I call the customer and disk 0 led had turned on.  I proceed to change the disc

Re: HP MSA2012fc - Disk channel error

You should consider to update to J202R10 by the way:

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?sp4ts.oid=3687119&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3Didx%253D%257CswItem%253DMTX_2268b73a332c405dbfb1a5b2ff%257CswEnvOID%253D4064%257CitemLocale%253D%257CswLang%253D%257Cmode%253D%257Caction%253DdriverDocument&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vig...

Your version (J200) is much older!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
