As per the title, what setting do you use and why please?
We're finding on servers with it OFF that there are no issues, but on servers with it ON every so often it kicks a drive to DEVICE-ERROR status and the unit into DEGRADED status even though further checks on the drive show all is good.

50% of our servers are 3Ware cards (9650se, 9690sa, 9740-4i) and I'm pretty sure all of them have auto-verify turned on.
I've never had any issues with it, are you sure there is no chassis vibratrion? We had issues with a few cheaper chassis causing lots of RAID dropouts but since replacing the fans + seating with rubber grommits all is well.
We have multiple dozens of 3ware cards, all have auto verify on. In the rare occasion one is kicked out of RAID and rebuilt it generally fails in the next month or so....so we take those device error reports seriously
