Possible failing hard drive?


I'm getting these two lines in /var/log/messages about ever 30 seconds:

Code:
Oct 28 09:40:24 scooby kernel: mfi0: 38151 (278454227s/0x0002/0) - PD 12(e252/s2)
CDB 2a:00:00:02:df:bf:00:00:20:00 
Sense f0:....[truncated for space]....:ff:ff
Oct 28 09:40:24 scooby kernel: : Unexpected sense: PD 0c(e0xfc/s2) Path 500000e01530d6a2 , 
CDB: 2a 00 00 02 df bf 00 00 20 00, 
Sense: f0 00 0b 00 02 df ca 28 00
From what I gather it is probably something to do with one of our SAS drives? Is it failing? Can anyone elaborate for me?

Thanks.

Ok. I'm not familiar with the mfi(4) LSI MegaRAID SAS driver. IMO, the message is obscure enough that you might consider tapping freebsd-questions.

I rebooted the machine into safe mode and ran:

Quote:
fsck -fy
in hopes of fixing the file system. No such luck.

As soon as I reboot back into normal mode, the screen fills up with that error message. Would the output of dmesg be any more help?
