My opinion is that complete hard drive failure and block-level media failure are two totally different things.
That would depend on the recovery behavior of the drive for block-level media failure. A drive whose firmware does excessive (reports of up to 2 minutes) retries of a bad sector may be indistinguishable from a failed drive. See previous discussions of the firmware differences between desktop and enterprise drives. _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
