Howdy y'all. An HP NetServer running NW5 is displaying a message about disk deactivation:

"Error writing to the directory on <ServerName/SYS>".

"Device <DeviceName> deactivated due to device failure."

Sounds like the un-mirrored Seagate ST336918N Ultra SCSI disk is wearing out. Rebooting the system works, but these failures are increasing and are now only weeks apart. The users like the legacy app running on this server and don't wish to replace it any time soon.

I'll use MONITOR to check the number of Used Hot Fix Blocks. Haven't run VREPAIR yet, but I will.

If there is a more suitable forum for questions about NW 5, please advise.

Thanks much.
