I've been getting intermittent errors on a hard disk in a PowerEdge 2650.
The errors are of the type "Ext3fs: (device sda5) in start_transaction:
Journal has aborted" when this has happened, the machine becomes
unresponsive and whenever I try and get to pass commands to the machine, I
get the following, "scsi (0:0): rejection i/o to offline device"
This had happened the weekend at some stage, and the machine would not
have been in use during this time. From a little googling around, I've
found out that it could be a hard drive problem, possible failure.
I've used stress (http://freshmeat.net/projects/stress/%3Ftopic_id=861) on
it to try and replicate the problem but nothing yet.
Do any of you have recomendations as to what other tool I could use to
replicate the problem, or even find out whats wrong?
Thanks in advance,
