possible errors indicating bad hard drive on HP rp2450

hi experts,

 I have this HP rp2450  HP-UX B.11.11 and I was copying a file to the server and encoutered many write errors similar to this:

SCSI: Async write error -- dev: b 31 0x01f000, errno: 126, resid: 49152,
        blkno: 8170032, sectno: 16340064, offset: 4071145472, bcount: 49152.


What does this mean?

it looks suspiciously like you are hitting the 4GB limit. is the filesize  greater than 4 gigabytes?  if so then not all filesystems even programs can handle this. I can't remember the rules for largefile support on hpux , but that will give you enough to look for in patches and filesystem parameters

Hi dlethe,

  I'm not familiar with this OS at all. How would I check if the filezise is bigger than 4gb?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

ls -l FILENAME will return size in bytes along with a lot of other things like permissions.  This command is good for all unix / linux variations as well, so it's one worth remembering ;)

ok and what can be done if the file size is hitting the 4GB limit?

Gerald ConnollyCommented:
2GB is the file limit. Once you are past that depending on the filesystem a file can be as big as 2TB

dlethe,

 this command didn't do anything for me ls -l FILENAME  maybe I typed it wrong? first I think I need to find the file size that is hitting the 4gb limit and then I will need your help to fix that. Please keep in mind I don't have any experience with this OS, so be detailed.
