SUMMARY: SCSI transport failed

From: Vaidyanathan, Ramkumar <>
Date: Wed Mar 01 2006 - 10:24:09 EST

In summary everybody suggested to replace the failing disk and couple of
suggestions to run:

Iostat -En (and check for any errors)
Reseat all scsi connections and reboot the box again..

I ran iostat and got couple of errors (transportation error) on the
particular disk (and also several other disks) and need to investigate the
ouput further.

Option 2 (reboot) is not possible, as I am in 24x7 production.

Thanks to Andrew Hall, Michael Segale, Debbie Tropiano, and Coy Hile.

One think nobody answered is: is there any link to all the SCSI errors? (or
any other documents?)

I keep getting following errors in the /var/adm/messages file:

SCSI: [ID 243001 kern.warning] WARNING: /swsp@0,7/ssd@0,4 (ssd32) :
SCSI transport failed: reason 'aborted': retrying command

Does any one know what to troubleshoot and how to fix this error?
Also if you some one who show a pointer to all the SCSI transport errors
(and fixes) that will be great!

I will summarize my results...
