Hi;

There is DASD degraded problem on my AS/400 system and when I use WRKDSKSTS to see that disk status, I found the following info.

Unit  Type     Size      %     I/O    Request    Read    Write   Read   Write   %             ---Protection----
Compression (M)    Used    Rqs   Size (K)     Rqs      Rqs     (K)      (K)     Busy  ASP   Type    Status
1      6717     6442    60.8   .0           .0         .0         .0       .0       .0        0      1      DPY     DEGRADED
2      6717     6442    59.2   .0           .0         .0         .0       .0       .0        0      1      DPY     DEGRADED
3      6717     6442    59.2   .0           .0         .0         .0       .0       .0        0      1      DPY     DEGRADED
4      6717     6442    59.2   .0           .0         .0         .0       .0       .0        0      1      DPY     DEGRADED

I was told, it could be the Cache Battery or the I/O card is going out.  Can anyone tell me what will be actualy problem.  If I go to get a new I/O Card, do I need to reconfigure all my LUN configuration again after replace a new card.  Or if just the cache battery problem, can I just get a battery to replace it, also; do I need to reconfigure the LUN configuration?

Help !!!! :(

Many thanks!

This is really for IBM's AIX operating system. Not AS/400 and OS/400.

Do you have maintenance contract on your AS/400?  If so, ask IBM.   If this is a hardward problem, which based on what I have read it is, only a CE can tell you exactly what is wrong.

You can read this from another forum.  It has some things that you might be able to display:
