Hello all!
I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction.  
We're running RAID 10 on MegaRAID LSI cards and I'm seeing an 'Other 
Error Count' being reported via MegaCLI.  What are these?  Should I 
consider these health concerns?

Other errors can be anything other than a bad block like SCSI bus communication errors.  I would make sure my firmware is up to date on the hard drives and the PERC controller.

Here's a list of common error codes
