SubjectMD/RAID: what's wrong with sector 1953519935?
Date
Hello,

I'm using two ST31000528AS drives in RAID1 array using MD. I've had several
failures occur over a period of few months (see logs below). I've RMA'd the
drive, but then got curious why an otherwise normal drive locks up while
trying to write the same sector once a month or so, but does not report
having bad sectors, doesn't fail any tests, and does just fine if I do
dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdb bs=512 seek=1953519935 count=1
however many times I try.
I then tried Googling for this number (1953519935) and found that it comes
up quite a few times and most of the time (or always) in context of md/raid.
So my question is: is it just a coincidence (doesn't seem to be likely for a
number this big), or is it possible that when sent to hard drive, it gets
interpreted like some command and sends the drive into some unpredictable
state?

I will gladly provide any additional info that might be necessary.
