Seagate ST136403FC (SUN36G) Sense codes?

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Peter Eriksson, Sep 5, 2003.

  1. I have a Seagate SX136403FC drive, reformatted with Sun
    firmware (the latest from patch 109962-11) 144A, that
    generates these errors every now and then. Does *anyone*
    here have access to a listing of possible ASC codes so I
    can decipher exactly what error is causing this?

    (I tried contacting Seagate technical support but they
    only refered me to Sun - and I haven't found anything
    in SunSolve).

    WARNING: /[email protected],0/SUNW,[email protected],0/[email protected],0/[email protected],0 (ssd120):

    Sense Key: Soft Error

    I dont have the vendor codes but the rest of the report is clear.

    FWIW, the report means that a read error was corrected (usually by
    re-reading the block).

    If this is always associated with the same block or a small subset
    of block this means that the block concerned is iffy.
    If the error is associated with random blocks this indicates an
    external problem such as dubious wiring or a noisy power supply.
