I would certainly not ignore them.

How old is the drive? Have you run the SMART tests on it?

Also double check the cable connectors - sometimes minor oxidization can cause problems (usually just replugging will clean the contacts enough).

Granted, doesn't happen often, but it is something to think about if the disk checks pass.

Yes, they are not good, so back up your data quickly.
Quote:
Secondly what causes these error to be generated.
Many, MANY factors, such as age of the drive, temperature, vibration, etc...normal wear. Your RHEL version is VERY old, so it's safe to assume that the hardware its on it ALSO very old. Nothing lasts forever
Quote:
Third , how we can rectify these errors.
You very obviously REPLACE THE BAD DRIVE

Also...this seems VERY familiar...considering you've posted essentiall the same question several times now
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ux-4175471257/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ux-4175469073/

AGAIN, you are using a VERY old version of RHEL that is no longer supported. If you're paying for support (as you SHOULD BE, if you're using RHEL), you can contact Red Hat for help in migrating. Otherwise, I'm not sure what else anyone can tell you...you have hardware errors, and have had them for a while. There is no magic program that anyone can suggest to 'fix' a dying hard drive...you REPLACE IT.
