Possible Hardware problem?

We have three db servers, Proliant DL360 and each server has the same information in /var/log/messages so I'm not sure if all of the server would have the same problem. Anyway here's the error messages:

Apr 9 07:37:10 asp3db2 kernel: hda: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
Apr 9 07:37:10 asp3db2 kernel: ide: failed opcode was: unknown
Apr 9 07:37:10 asp3db2 kernel: hda: ATAPI reset complete

So would this mean that disk hda is going bad or what? It strange that three different servers would have the same message.

It's most likely your ide controller given that you get the exact same error message on all three servers. Probably nothing to worry about unless you are seeing other issues with the servers. You can check the performance of hda with hdparm to make sure you are still getting decent transfer speeds:

# hdparm -tT /dev/hda

If that checks out OK I wouldn't worry about it.
