I get the following error message when booting my server. It has a SCSI controller card (Adaptec 29160) and a SCSI hard drive:

Unexpected SCSI Command Failure


Target SCSI ID: 2


SCSI CDB Sent : 25 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00


SCSI Controller Status : 00h – No SCSI controller error


Target Status :  02h – check condition


Sense Key : 03h – Medium error


Sense Code : 31h


Sense Code Qualifier : 00h

Can anyone tell me is it the controller that is going bad or is my hard drive fried?

This would probably be the drive since it look like it's SCSI ID 2.

I would check th cables and termination.

Try a new drive and see if it still happens. If not then the old drive is apparently dying.


I hope this helps !
