    Question Kernel Error?

    hi all,
    looking my daily logwatch output i see the following kernel error:
    --------------------- Kernel Begin ------------------------


    WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
    hda: drive_cmd: error=0x04 { DriveStat...: 1 Time(s)
    hda: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }...: 1 Time(s)
    hdb: drive_cmd: error=0x04 { DriveStat...: 1 Time(s)
    hdb: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }...: 1 Time(s)

    ---------------------- Kernel End -------------------------

    Anyone can know what error that is and if this need to be fixed?
    The server is up and running fine.

    Thanks a lot

    Hrm.. I'm not 100% sure what I'm seeing there but, I think I am seeing a hard drive seek error recorded.

    Maybe someone else can tell us for sure?

    We were getting this last week on a server. Turned out to be the drive channels on the MB.

    sometimes you will get this error if the drive does not support smart.

    are you running a backup like tape backup or such.. its really nothing to worry about unless they continue to happen.. then it could be a drive that is starting to die

    Agreed. This is nothing to be concerned about. You might simply want to make sure that SMART support is enabled in your bios. That will more than likely make those disappear. Even if you can't turn on SMART in your bios, you shouldn't be concerned. Those errors are not necessarily an indication that your hard drive(s) are going to fail.
