Talked to Dell in Norway today, they're takling about replacing the RAID 
controller (which means the entire machine I suppose) if I do a disk 
scan with one of the support-guys' favorite disk checker without getting 
any errors (it'll take forever, but if that is the shortest path to 
trying a new controller then so be it : ) The Dell Diagnostics I ran 
late last night gave me the following error, which the support guy I 
talked to was unable to interpret.

Test Errors
SCSI 2-005 Disk - Read Test                                : Fail
  Status: Fail  Status Code: DOS DDG-D SCSI 050 071
  Device: SCSI_2_005_Disk  Test: Read_Test
  Release: 1068 Module(s): Scsi
  Msg: Block 20992: : Unexpected bus free

This only happened once, all other drives checked out okay and the 
second time I ran it I didn't get any errors on drive 5 either... it's 
an elusive thing. Just thought I'd run it by you in case you've seen it 
before or it is of any interest.
