MegaCLI 'Other Errors Count'

No, there is no way to clear these errors out.

These errors include lots of things like "Unexpected SENSE" conditions coming from the drives. Are they health concerns? Probably not, but it is possible that some of them are.

Is there a way to clear these other errors out?

It looks like alot of errors that are being thrown are the 6/29/00 (POWER ON, RESET, OR BUS DEVICE RESET OCCURRED), which seem to conincide with reboots or kernel panics on our systems, and instead of holding onto this error, is there a way to just get rid of it?

Looking through the MegaCLI interface, there doesn't seem to be a way to, and Google doesn't turn up anything either.

Thanks in advance.

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

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
