Description Milan Kerslager 2007-03-20 22:46:01 UTC
On RHEL5 (kernel-2.6.18-8.1.1.el5) I've got this error message:

ata7: translated ATA stat/err 0x51/0c to SCSI SK/ASC/ASCQ 0xb/00/00
ata7: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
ata7: error=0x0c { DriveStatusError }

This seems like disc problem so this may be only kernel noise.

Comment 1 Milan Kerslager 2007-04-05 09:23:25 UTC
There is no EH (Error Handling) in sata_mv driver and I had HW issues with one
of my WD4000KD.

A message from Tejun Heo (see about
incorporating new EH to the latest kernel):

Okay, it's sata_mv.  sata_mv is just now receiving new error handler.
The old EH path is almost non-existent and bound to hang the machine
when IO error occurs.  So, you can...
1. Wait for sata_mv to get new EH.  I dunno how long it would take to
propagate through distribution but maybe in several months from now.
2. Go out and grab a SATA controller with working EH.

So I wish new libata in upcoming RHEL 5.1... (is it planned?)

Please close this bug as DEFFERED as I'm unable to do so even I'm a submiter.

Comment 2 David Milburn 2010-05-07 20:46:23 UTC
Closing since error handling has been updated in RHEL5.
