A couple of weeks ago my linux home server’s root disk failed. I replaced it with one I had sitting around and rebuilt the OS.
Now this morning I get this email:
Subject: SMART error (Health) detected on host: homeserver
Date: Sun, 28 Sep 2008 03:14:07 -0400
This email was generated by the smartd daemon running on:
host name: homeserver
DNS domain: localdomain
NIS domain: (none)
The following warning/error was logged by the smartd daemon:
Device: /dev/hda, FAILED SMART self-check. BACK UP DATA NOW!
For details see host's SYSLOG (default: /var/log/syslog).
You can also use the smartctl utility for further investigation.
No additional email messages about this problem will be sent.
Lets see what disk sales Best Buy/Circuit City/etc has today..
