    Question Hard drive Input/output error?

    I just rebooted the server and right now can access the hard drive so I am trying to grab as many files as possible but this drive is probably going to die soon right?

    ls -l
    Code:
    ls: reading directory .: Input/output error
    total 0
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    Code:
    smartd[3899]: Device /dev/sdb, not capable of SMART self-check
    smartd[3889]: Sending warning via mail to root ...

    Try to run a filesystem check . Otherwise you need to install new HDD's . Hope you have backups.

    No backups but the hard drive is now working, I am going to try to grab all the files while I can starting with the most important ones. I probably won't run any filesystem check on it until I get all the files I need. Do you think that log is sufficient to have the host replace the hard drive?

    Hello,

    No, better do a h/w check and confirm your drive is failing and change the HDD.
