Raid - Media Errors problem

I have a S5000VSA server running 4HDDs in a RAID 10 configuration;

SATA Slot 0 & 1 are for Span 0

and

SATA Slots 2 & 3 are for Span 1

I noticed the properties of the physical Disks 0 & 1 were showing media errors (and a consistency check shows the same)

There are a 11 in total here is a sample of the events being recorded;

ID = 33

 

SEQUENCE NUMBER = 36

 

TIME = 18-09-2009 15:48:06

 

LOCALIZED MESSAGE = Controller ID: 0 Consistency Check detected uncorrectable multiple medium errors: ( PD 0:1 Location 0x2ef9c5 VD 0)

ID = 32

 

SEQUENCE NUMBER = 35

 

TIME = 18-09-2009 15:48:06

 

LOCALIZED MESSAGE = Controller ID: 0 Consistency Check detected uncorrectable multiple medium errors: ( PD 0 Location 0x2ef9c5 VD 0)

I removed the Slot 0 & 1 drives, replacing them with new ones and let them rebuild. However I am still seeing exactly the same errors on these new ones;

ID = 154

 

SEQUENCE NUMBER = 182

 

TIME = 19-09-2009 22:35:11

 

LOCALIZED MESSAGE = Controller ID: 0 Consistency Check detected uncorrectable multiple medium errors: ( PD 0:1 Location 0x2ef9c5 VD 0)

ID = 153

 

SEQUENCE NUMBER = 181

 

TIME = 19-09-2009 22:35:11

 

LOCALIZED MESSAGE = Controller ID: 0 Consistency Check detected uncorrectable multiple medium errors: ( PD 0 Location 0x2ef9c5 VD 0)

Any ideas what I can do next to correct this?

Thanks for any help

Strange - it's almost like it kept the old errors, even though there's new drives in place.

Can you force a consistency scan from within the RAID console?

Yes the consitency scans in my first post were from the console.

To confirm the errors on the old drives I ran Spintite which confirmed that each of the removed HDD are indeed having difficulties. One is in fact completely dead now.

Does Spintite show any problems with the new drives you put in?
