We are having a bit of head scratcher with our MD3000i array. We had a drive go out in the array so I put a new one in. It would start the reconstruction process but during the process we would get multiple emails saying "Event Message: Read physical disk error during interrupted write Component type: RAID Controller Module Component location: RAID Controller Module in slot 1" along with "Unreadable sector(s) detected data loss occurred Component type: Virtual Disk Component location: Virtual Disk StorgeVD"
Then after 3 to 4 hours of it rebuilding we would get an email stating "Overflow in unreadable sector database" and that the reconstruction failed.
I have tried 3 different Dell branded drives that are for this system and they all do the same thing. My problem now is we are getting : Impending physical disk failure detected by physical disk Component type: Physical Disk Component location: Enclosure 0, Slot 6
The odd thing is in the Modular Storage manager it is showing all drives are optimal and that bay 14 has the hot spare in standby.
I do not want to risk taking the VD offline, but need to get this figured out in the event slot 6 does go bad.
Thanks for any help!
