Well it sounds like a dead drive.
BUT: Do you have an array controller? If so, what is it?
Array's start with /dev/sda aswell as SCSI drives (with dell controllers
You can go into the controller and check the physical status of the drive?
Check for hard and soft errors directly.
apologies if you have already had replies, but my MX backup is only
sending me mails now - since my old server died completely two days ago.
The proliant is up and currently making noise in the utility room.
Hopefully this will annoy her indoors enough to allow me to invest in
wireless so that it can go to the shed :)
