Help !! IDS 4235 Disk Problem.


My IDS 4235 have a error message during bootup :

WARNING : Drive on ch A, SCSI ID: 0 had exceeded Failure Prediction Threshold! Please make backup as soon as possible. Press any key to continue.

I try to press Ctrl-A to run the SCSI disk utility and verify Disk Media for this H/D, this H/D is ok. then I try to format this H/D,

after success, I reboot this IDS appliance, but the error message still occur.

Please give me some advise to resolve this problem.

Best Regards,

Jackson Ku


Re: Help !! IDS 4235 Disk Problem.

I am not familiar with any bugs that cause this message so I would take it at face value. It's a bad hard drive. If you have a SmartNet on it you can call TAC and get a replacement but you can usually just replace the hard drive yourself and you should be fine. I have done this myself a few times and have had no problems. If yout go that route I would get the exactsame HD as whats in the unit or at least as close to it as you can get but I don't think this solution it supported by TAC
