MSA2324fc reports "Medium error, unrecovered read error" but doesn't fail disk

Dear all,

 

our MSA2324fc (firmware M113R11) with 3 expansion bays MSA70 (firmware 2.28) reports the following messages in the event log which indicate a broken disk to me (the disk is a HP DH0146FAQRE with firmware HPDC):

These messages appear as "Informational" messages, not "Critical" or "Warning". The disk LED is green and the vdisk, which the disk 2.18 belongs to, is also green. The most recent background scrub completed without error messages:

 

2013-04-11 23:09:52B23938207A scrub-vdisk job completed. No errors were found. (vdisk: vd-sokrates-spool, SN: 00c0ffd89e3b0000ae7b604b00000000)

 

We are concerned about the fact that the MSA does not report this situation as an error and prompt us to replace the disk. Would it be safe to replace this disk? Can we configure the MSA to report this situation as an error / warning instead of a purely informational message?

 

Best Regards,

Peter

Re: MSA2324fc reports "Medium error, unrecovered read error" but doesn't fail disk

Hi Peter,

 

MSA cannot be configured to report these messages as critical or warning.

 

For a medium error on the drive replacement is recommended
