That message is reporting a problem in communication between the drive and the controller (or, perhaps, between the controller and main memory), not a problem reading the media, so the LBA is likely not all that useful (esp. since, if you got no other messages, the retry succeeded so no data was lost). What does egrep 'ad[0-9]|ata' /var/run/dmesg.boot report? > # dd if=/dev/ad6 of=/dev/null bs=1m seek=107491647 count=1 > dd: /dev/null: Inappropriate ioctl for device > > Another question: why does it fail? seek= applies to the output file, so it tried to do a seek on /dev/null :) You probably wanted skip= (or iseek=). _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
