Hi all,

Just found these messages in my logfile. Is it something to worry about?
I've never seen them before upgrading to 6.3.

ra kernel: ad0: TIMEOUT - READ_DMA48 retrying (1 retry left) LBA=281550271

Yea -- normally that means a bad sector(*), and where there's one,
there's bound to be more.  Failed drive eventually.

I would pull this server from rotation and run a full surface sector
scan on it (download an ISO of "Hiran's Boot CD")

Brian, thanks for your answer (and sugggestion).

Isn't a drive supposed to mark a bad sector as bad and ignore it (that is: not use it anymore)?
