Is that really means Hardware issue???

Hello all

I am getting the follow during the boot sequence

Medium Error at block number: 418160
Hard Error Detected
Hardware ID = 46
Maxtor 6E040L0 NAR6
Active CCB at time of error
CCB request completed with an error
Error, exception, or abnormal condition
MEDIUM ERROR - Nonrecoverable medium error
cam_logger: SCSI event packet
cam_logger: hardware_id=46 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
cdisk_check_sense
Medium Error at block number: 418160
Hard Error Detected
Hardware ID = 46
Maxtor 6E040L0 NAR6
Active CCB at time of error


and same error repeat for several other block numbers

so is enough to prove hardware error and replace the disk

kindly advice

Yes, it really looks that way.

Hi,

You might get away with reassigning the bad blocks with scu, for example:

scu> reassign lba 418160

However I remember having lots of reliability issues with Maxtor IDE drives a few years back...

Cheers,

Rob

Re: Is that really means Hardware issue???

From the boot log you supplied, it looks like some of those disk errors are within the root partition. Some block(s) of some file(s) accessed during startup are unreadable, therefore your system intergrity is compromised.

That being the case it is time to replace the drive and restore the system.

As Rob suggested you might try scu... Or if the errors stop during normal running, you might simply 'leave it' for now. But it will probably get worse, and you probably run the risk tha the next boot may not work at all.
