I have a Dell Poweredge T710 with 16 drives. I'm getting the following errors in the OpenManage for the Disks
A block on the physical disk has been punctured by the controller
Physical Disk 0:0:8/9/11/12/13/14
there was an unrecoverable disk media error during the rebuild or recovery operation
Physical Disk 0:0:8/9/11/12
The driver detected a controller error on \Device\RaidPort0
Virtual Disk bad block medium error is detected: Virtual Disk 2
There's tons of these in event viewer.
I'm not sure what to think of these errors. Theres one for almost every disk in that Virtual Disk set. We have no problems with that server. Backups are completing successfully, no errors other than these disk errors in the OpenManage. all the physical disks have green checks are are in STATUS OK state. This almost looks like a controller error, given that so many disks are reporting bad. How can I confirm if a disk is bad or not, and clear these errors from OpenManage?
Im afraid the clear Virtual Disk Bad Blocks option will break the server, depending on where the blocks are. Can I run a consistency check while the virtual drive is online and the server is running?
This server is a Hyper V server with 6 VMs. I have 3 virtual disks in the set. Disk 1 is the C drive. It is simply 2 disks in a mirrored set. Virtual Disk 1 and 2 are Raid 5 sets that are spanned volumes in Computer Management. My spanned volumes say "Healthy (At Risk)". What is listed as Disk 2 in Computer Management has a little yellow Triangle and says "errors". If I right click I only have three options "Reactivate, Offline, or Properties". Not sure what to make of this.
Any advice is appreciated!
