SCSI Harddisk health
My SCSI harddisk shows error when i run smartctl. Today server when down, on rebooting i get following email.
This email was generated by the smartd daemon running on:
host name: server32.hosthat.com
DNS domain: hosthat.com
NIS domain: (none)
The following warning/error was logged by the smartd daemon:
Device: /dev/sda, SMART Failure: HARDWARE IMPENDING FAILURE DATA ERROR RATE TOO HIGH
For details see host's SYSLOG (default: /var/log/messages).
You can also use the smartctl utility for further investigation.
No additional email messages about this problem will be sent.

I contacted DC, got following reply
I need to verify but I am not 100% sure that SCSI disks are SMARTD compatible and you could be getting a false reading. You are better off using the SCSI utility for your card and have it check the disk health. Depending on your card your using there is likely and agent or other software you can use from the manufacture to check the health.
How do i make sure my Hard disk is not going to die ?
