Re: I/O error entries

Shalom,

I think you have lost a disk or controller.

dmesg

grep lbolt /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Re: I/O error entries

Hi,

"format" the binary "current" disk log, i.e. /var/stm/logs/os/logX.raw.cur, with the cstm utility, to a readable ascii file.

Procedure can be found in :
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=809057

NOTE: in the above thread its the "t3" file that is the ascii readable text that can then be vi'd to check what is going on..

Re: I/O error entries

Hi,

>-- Logtool Utility: View Formatted Summary --

This is the output of the formatted summary, instead of the output of the formatted log, I was hinting on.

In "steno"

run cstm
cstm>ru
2 (for logtool)

fr (format raw)
[RETURN] select default directory
q (quit)
Done

fl (View formatted log)
q (quit)
SA (Save As) /var/tmp/t3.out (this file will be ascii viewable)
Done

quit logtool/cstm
quit
OK
quit
OK

And then a "#tail -500 /var/tmp/t3.out" to see what is going on.

NOTE: From the formatted summary output, looks like 1 of the emc clariion diskarray luns has problems..

Greetz,
Chris
