Remote server getting this error:

'Unable to get contiguous disk space- trying small blocks. Fatal error: cannot write to transaction log.'

Now it may not be exact because this is coming from general user who reset the server (which was locked) and didn't write it down word for word. I'm assuming because I can't find any refs to any part of this error anywhere.

Console log archiving was not set (it is now).

Disk drive lights look OK according to user (no predictive RAID failure or anything).

any ideas?

would a poolverify help pinpont?
