Re: Hard disk fails

NetApp has recently updated KB Article

This KB lists some drive Models that have higher failure rate.

The fix is to upgrade the disk firmware.


You migh be hitting a Bug and upgrading the drive firmware might fix it.

Hope there are no environment issues in the data center.

Re: Hard disk fails

I have checked the link and could not find my disk in the list. I am concerned if another disk will fail soon.
