Just got a Disabled Disk message

Recommended Posts

Disk dropped offline so there's no SMART report, but it's on a SASLP and those are known to drop disks without a reason, reboot to see if the disk comes online and post new diags, if a reboot doesn't do it a power cycle should.

I'm positive I pushed the "SMART extended self-test" START button.  If/when it finishes, how will I know it's done?  Inside the SMART report dump is a line that reads:  



Self-test execution status:      ( 249)    Self-test routine in progress...
                    90% of test remaining.


Its read this for about 3 hours but hopefully this means that the extended test is still running?

Almost 24 hours later and it is still running the test.



root@unraid:~# smartctl -t long /dev/sdj
smartctl 7.1 2019-12-30 r5022 [x86_64-linux-5.10.28-Unraid] (local build)

Can't start self-test without aborting current test (90% remaining),
add '-t force' option to override, or run 'smartctl -X' to abort test.

That's not normal, it should be around 6H as mentioned in the SMART report:


Extended self-test routine
recommended polling time:      ( 389) minutes.


Disk might have slow sector zones, that together with the other issues makes me think you should consider replacing it now.

Is it my main CPU that runs the self-test or an embedded controller on the drive itself?  I kicked off another extended test yesterday on /dev/sdg for which the smartctl output said it should take 587 mins.  It is still running almost 24 hours later and says:



Self-test execution status:      ( 246) Self-test routine in progress...
                                        60% of test remaining.


The original "bad" drive is also still running its test.

So neither of the drives are progressing in their smart tests and there's nothing going on with the array.  WTH??


EDIT: I've taken the array offline just to see if that helps the tests move along.
