SCO Openserver on Proliant 3000 "command timed out"

Can anyone suggest what the following error message means?

CPU2: wARNING: ida0: Command timed out on dev 1/8 blk 4986654
CPU2: logical unit=0, block=15219294, size=2, cmd=0x30

Should I be worried about it or is this normal? The server is working fine for the users as far as I can tell.

Openserver 5.0.6a
Proliant 3000
EFS 5.48a

Thanks
Mik

It looks like there may be a problem with drive ID 0.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

yes,

logical unit=0 implies the first array though, not the first physical drive. The server only has one array with all the drives in it (7 drives, RAID 5 with a spare) so knowing that there is a problem with the first array doesn't get me anywhere.

Or is there something in that message that is pointing to a defective physical disk? If so, I would expect the controller to use the hot spare drive and raise a drive failure notification.

device 1/8 in the OS refers to the main filesystem division on that array. I assume that the controller is not using "dev 1/8" to mean something else.

I have seen this error before on another Proliant 3000 server although not recently for some reason.

Thanks again
Mik (slightly confused)
