hi, as the subject states we have a IBM ds 5300 with a few exp 5060's. yesterday afternoon we had a issue with a drawer in exp 0 - every disk in the tray went dark and all the disk were marked in the log like this:

Date/Time: 12/16/13 3:44:38 PM
Sequence number: 109553
Event type: 6008

Event send alert: false
Event visibility: true
