this, or any, request. Cycle power to the device.

Alternatively, there could be more than one device having the same address
on the SCSI bus. Make all the addresses on the SCSI bus unique.

Alternatively, one or both of the terminators on the SCSI bus may be
missing. Install the terminators in their proper locations at the ends of
the SCSI bus.

Alternatively, the SCSI cable may have become detached from the device.
Re-attach the cable.

Well.. it will go away once the issue with the disk has been addressed.

Has it been replaced or reseated? It looks like it is an internal disk to an r or n class machine.

Thanks Alzhy,
It's Rp8400 box & a internal scsi disk.
I did checkout the cstm it says information failed for scsi disk.
Can you let me know how to get out of this.

Determine whether it is a real disk issue.
Try to re-seat it, most of the time it helps.

I can see that your STM and EMS versions are very low. By upgrading those, if it is false alarm, will resolve the bugs.

We started getting the alerts after the reboot. I did checkout the disk it's okay.
Can you let know the latest version

How did you "checkout" the disk was okay? Physical checks? Better check again sir. EMS does not lie. Engage HP Support to have the Disk replaced.

Or you can do:

dd if=/dev/rdsk/cXtYdZ of=/dev/null bs=1024k

and observer you syslogs or dmesg ouput show the errors.

As Alzhy said, determine the disk error using dd command first.

Then will consider the update of EMS / STM. It is available at softwaredepot at hp.
