I am having issues with a new server and just wanted to verify the problem is with the hard disk.
It is a Sun Microsystems SunFire x2100. It is running Cent OS x64. It has two 500 GB SATA-II hard disks.
The problem I get is that after a while, nothing responds. I attempt to shut down, and it spews a bunch of errors saying that the file system is in read only mode.
Upon reboot, I get messages such as:
buffer i/o error on device dm-0 logical block 0
command 0xca, timeout stat 0xd0 host stat 0x21
ATA 1 translated ata stat/err 0x51/84 to scsi sk/asc/ascq 0x6/47
I reboot and it'll work fine again for a while. I have removed the drives and plugged them back in and it doesn't seem to do anything. Am I correct in assuming I have a bad hard disk? or is it something else?
