analyzing disk errors

Is there anything as 'soft' errors in openVMS as we analyz utility is reporting errors on all the disks and I am trying to figure out what does this error report telling me :

Re: analyzing disk errors

hi,

this is just an informational event , all volume mounts / dismounts are written to the error log along with number of other informational events such as timestamps.
are you currently getting increasing disk errors ? what storage is it using ?
