Re: Smartd message: What does it mean?

Smartd reads the drives not the file systems, I believe. As such
grown bad blocks are a bad sign. Sometimes you CAN run for a long
time on such drives. All too often you lose it all with the drive
fails in a critical place.

Hi

I have 2 machines with such messages  and hdd's just running fine for 2+
years. If ext2/3 fs is not marking such sectors as "bad, i dont use it
anymore" then its about time that such things are going to be developed
right? I do not want to replace a HDD if just 1 sector is marked bad at
smartd. The smartd message is only showing up after a reboot overhere.

Danny.

Hmmm...  or does it mean I need to completely
reformat or fsck this disk throughly to ensure
that it is really going bad?  I am using FC4
so I wonder if there is another reason...

I will have to chek this out.

Hi Folks,

Trying to understand this message, any ideas?

This email was generated by the smartd daemon running on:

  host name: xxx.xxx.com
 DNS domain: xxx.com
 NIS domain: (none)

The following warning/error was logged by the smartd daemon:
Device: /dev/hdb, 14 Currently unreadable (pending) sectors
For details see host's SYSLOG (default: /var/log/messages).
It means you have 14 bad sectors on your /dev/hdb hard drive. It also
means it is time to buy another drive and copy your data over to it.
