I went to install OpenOffice 2.0 final today, and it didn't complete. Got some SCSI error. But it installed the next time. Later, I found even more SCSI errors in my log. I thought it might just be a loose cable or something, until I ran the SMART long self-test:
SMART Self-test log
Num Test Status segment LifeTime LBA_first_err [SK ASC ASQ]
Description number (hours)
# 1 Background long Failed in segment --> 9 26710 0x 40ea2 [0x3 0x11 0x1]
DOH. I have a SMART short test scheduled every day, which would have paged my phone and shut the computer down if an error occurred. Wasn't doing the long tests though. WELL NOW I'VE LEARNED.
Now I have to figure out how to get Fujitsu to replace this thing. Edit:
that was easier than I thought. It was just difficult to *find* the RMA page. Once I got there, it was pretty much as good as WD or Seagate. And yes, I have now replaced every hard disk in atlas at least once.
And I'd better test my bigger disks too...Testing has begun.
Please wait 134 minutes for test to complete.
