Re: Getting SCSI Read error

Shalom,

Few good things to do here.

if the disk is offline:

ioscan

Look for NO_HW messages.

Better though is this thread, which tells you how to identify the disk.

Re: Getting SCSI Read error

Hi,

check for 0x050000 in this output

$ ll /dev/dsk | grep 0x050000

you will find the disk

then do "ioscan", "diskinfo" and "dd" for disk is ok or not

Re: Getting SCSI Read error

Hi,
ioscan -fnC disk output

>>disk 2 10/6/3/0.1.25.0.0.0.0 sdisk NO_HW DEVICE DGC C4700WDR5
/dev/dsk/c5t0d0 /dev/rdsk/c5t0d

My Questions:
1)Could you please tell me the cause for the issue?
ioscan is showing NO_HW that means your disk is bad,

2)How to solve?
you need to replace the disk

Re: Getting SCSI Read error

Hi All,

I think NO_HW means "No disk / Not found".

So I believe the disk may be detached from this.

My Questions:

1)Is disk attached or not?

2)How to find whether it is local or LUN?

3)How to find the behind this, that why it is showing NO_HW?
