Anyone got any thoughts on why disks on a HSZ70 controller pair would suddenly start throwing disks into mount verification?

One particular disk is reproducible in that if you run ANALYZE/DISK across it, it'll repeatedly go into mount verify.

A disk that was replaced (on the assumption that it had failed) spent about 2 days online, then again went mount verify, timed out, then offline. It still mounts on the other host on the shared bus quite happily.

VMS v6.2-1h3, 2 off AS4100, HSZ70 pair between the hosts.

The systems have been happy as a happy thing until this spurt of disk issues.

Doesn't sound like the disk at this point. If this is the only one affected, then look at anything else unique to this drive. Perhaps a bad tray slot, controller or even a marginal power supply. Try swapping parts around. See what changes or moves.

Thanks Dan.
It turned out that one of the disks was part of a stripeset with one failed disk. I still haven't got to the bottom of the disk that went mount verify and then timed out. At the moment, it seems fine so I'm keeping my head down!

You've just experienced warnings of imminent hardware failure. Make sure backups are up-to-date and starting implementing a storage replacement plan.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
