DriveReady SeekComplete Error for not existant drive


I'm having the strangest problem and I can't figure it out. My log file keeps filling up with the messages below about the IDE1 drive having problems, but my server only has SCSI drives in it. Anyone have any idea why I'd be getting errors on a drive that doesn't exist? Thanks!

I assume that hda is an optical drive. Is there an entry in your /etc/fstab where the OS is trying to mount a non-existent CD? If so add a noauto option.

Is hda really your optical drive? Does it work?

The server is an HP server and it's acutally 3 drives in a hardware RAID5. I had a drive go bad and fail over to the hotspare and that's when when I noticed all the problems. I've replaced the drive and it rebuilt but the errors still keep coming.

The type of drives are from HP - DRV,HD,145GB,U320,10K,HP

The CDROM drive not the hard drives.

I don't think that the CDROM is the optical drive. The CD works fine when I add a disk so I'm not sure that it's my problem. Are you thinking that it could be configured wrong?

I just grep'd this out of my messages file. You're right. It is looking at my CDROM. There isn't a CD in it, so why do you think it's reporting errors?

Thanks for the help... Getting closer!
