Symptoms

On an Oracle Big Data Appliance Cluster, running bdacheckcluster, to verify the health of the cluster, reports a informational message like below:

"bda1node02: INFO: Errors reported on disk 7 : 8 0"

 

Note that further investigation to view the physical drive information with "MegaCli64 pdlist a0", on the node in question can confirm "media" errors.  Run the MegaCli64 command as root. In the sample output here, on bda1node02, run "MegaCli64 pdlist a0".  Check the output for disk 7. Note the "Media Error Count" of 8, but no other errors.

 

Neither the bdacheckhw nor bdachecksw utilities report any errors.
