How does Tru64 handle disk errors

This question from our EMC storage support team: How does the Tru64 OS handle disk errors (R&W) and how does it relocate data?

Re: How does Tru64 handle disk errors

EMC is not supported by HP, so ask EMC directly.

Diskerrors are handled as defined by the SCSI specification (bad blocks etc).
In case of a hardware problem (read/write error) it will use the bad block replacement section and will report the scsi scan code to the OS. OS starts retry/recovery operations.
