Binary error on disks

Hi guys! I've been checking the binary logs on my system and I noticed some minor errors related to disks, what worries me a lot is how frequent they are reported. There's a error on the array battery cache regarding the near end of life, but I don't know if this is the cause of the remaining errors. I attach the logs so you can take a look at them. The server is an AlphaServer GS80 running Tru64 5.1B. I would appreciate some help on this.

Re: Binary error on disks

The messages reports:

"Recovery progress event, this is NOT an error"

Anyway, all messages points to device hardware ID 132.

Check your units in the storage, run:

show failed

To identify if a disk failed

show id

The Unit number for id 132 will be diplayed.

Then run:

Show DXXX

Under "Uses" column you will see the storageset name, then run:

show "name of storageset"

Check the state:

State:
NORMAL

Also, install WEBES, that will help you to translate the binary event log in a more legible form.

Re: Binary error on disks

I was checking the array controller but there was no recent error. According to error table for this type of array (HSG80), it seems there's some sort of unknown error (ASC & ASCQ Code x2400) or illegal request. The only valid error is the one regarding to battery cache. So, I guess I have to contact technical support. Thanks for your help.
