intel web raid consistency check runs forever

On the Intel Web Raid Console 2 i shows a consistency check being run but it never finshes. I select abort and it stops then restarts. Is there a way to stop this? The server is an intel server with a SRCSATAWB Raid Card. OS is Server 2008

To fix my issue i had to update the firmware to the lastest version and update web raid console to the latest. Here is a link to decode the messages

Let it finish. It could take DAYS. Maybe a week or more if you foolishly used consumer class disk drives.  It is repairing bad blocks that could take over 30 secs each.

This is why you need to use server / enterprise disks. They will remap in a few seconds and have more ECC bits that automatically correct errors by factor of 100

You are at grave risk of data loss  if you lose a disk before the process completes

disks show no errors in the logs and these are enterprise raid sata drives.

So i got it to stop. Towards the end of the consistency check i was able to set the properties from run continuously to weekly.  Here is the log

I check the manual and cant seem to find what these errors mean the sense errors will probably be resolved in a firmware update but ID = 268 is the one i mainly concerned about. I see no media errors in the Console.  0x500600B0020F0D90 is the actual raid card address according to the Web Raid Console.

Recovered blocks are NOT reported as errors. Nevertheless you are in deep recovery. So need to complete it.   But, hey, it is your data, so ignore the problem if you wish.

I said i said i stopped it but what i meant is that i got it to stop continously run. It did finish the check and a patrol read was ran as well. Do you know what ID 268 means ? Also so you know this is a test box so i dont care if data gets lost i just want to know how to decipher these errors so i will know when a problem comes on the production servers.
