SubjectDAC960: Bad Data Block Found
Date
If there's some place better to post this, please let me know.  Since the 
DAC960 driver has been orphaned, I haven't heard of anyone stepping up to
take it over, so I don't know where to go for help other than
linux-kernel.

Basically, the problem here is that I've got a mission-critical box running
on this controller and I'm starting to get some odd errors. The
controller and disks are about 3 years old, so I'm thinking this might be
an EOL issue but I'm hoping, of course, that that's not the case. I see
in my kernel msgs:

DAC960#0: Error Condition MEDIUM ERROR on READ:
DAC960#0: /dev/rd/c0d0: absolute blocks 405095..405102
DAC960#0: /dev/rd/c0d0p1: relative blocks 405032..405039
DAC960#0: Error Condition MEDIUM ERROR on READ:
DAC960#0: /dev/rd/c0d0: absolute blocks 405095..405102
DAC960#0: /dev/rd/c0d0p1: relative blocks 405032..405039
DAC960#0: Logical Drive 0 (/dev/rd/c0d0) Bad Data Block Found
DAC960#0: Logical Drive 0 (/dev/rd/c0d0) Bad Data Block Found
DAC960#0: Logical Drive 0 (/dev/rd/c0d0) Bad Data Block Found

Sounds bad, but the drives are still ticking and I haven't noticed any fs
corruption. How serious is the error? Can it be ignored? Is it time to
move to another array? Would dropping everything, scrubbing, and
restoring be sufficient?

Thanks,
John
