SYSLOG Errors should i be worried?

4 posts in this topic Last Reply

I recently added a new SAS 6tb parity drive that refuses to spin down unless i manually use sg_start --stop command on it.  I am also getting a ton of these errors in syslog.  I am working on a script to spin down the drive but cannot figure out a way to determine its inactive.

 

Here is the errors are they just confirming HDPARM cannot spin down the drive?

I am on 6.7.2

So it is the spin down attempt that is triggering that error nothing else?  I don't get why all my other SAS disks spin down fine.  I think it is firmware.

 

And i thought SAS was supported now based on the RC of 6.7.0
