Goal

The Sun Storage 3000 Arrays take advantage of RAID as well as SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting) technology to recover from media errors to a disk. These utilities allow for a disk drive to incur minimal (corrected) I/O faults, and continue on as an active member of the Logical Disk.  There may be instances where the disk remains active, but has exceeded any reasonable error threshold.  When these conditions occur, this document explains how to relocate the data off the drive, before replacement of the disk from the array.
