hda: drive_cmd: status=0x04 DriveReady SeekComplete Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have Centos 5.7 on Hyper-V. I have just noticed following errors and I don't know what does it mean.

    hda: drive_cmd: status=0x04 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
    hda: drive_cmd: error=0x4 { DriveSTatusError }
    ide: failed opcode was: 0xb0
    hda: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }

    This centos vm is running fine but just the above errors which displays on the login shell screen.

    I take this to mean, that Centos is trying to read smart info via the BIOS. The BIOS does not return this info, this is why you are seeing this error.

    Something on your Centos VM is trying to read this data. If you've disabled smartd - then there must be something else requesting this info.

  • This is not a known issue. What type of storage does the VHD reside on?

  • This is a plain SAS JBOD so the question would rather

    • Is it a VHD or a pass-through device?
    • If it is VHD, what type is it (dynamic, fixed size etc.)
    • How is it attached to the VM - via SCSI or IDE controller

  • Hi Koffi2k

    Its VHD.
    Its fixed size.
    Its attached via IDE controller.

  • failed opcode was: 0xb0

    This is related to smart

    Have you got smartd running in centos?
    I'm not sure the IDE controller supports returning smart information for a VHD

  • We don't pass the SMART data from the physical disk into the VM.

    Are any other VHD's on the host volume experiencing any issues?

    Are any disks in the array going bad?

    Can you boot off rescue media and run fsck.ext3 /dev/hda?

  • I have two Centos VM and both of them has same errors. Disk array seems to be fine as I have few other Windows Servers 2003/2008 which are running fine with no disk errors or anything like that.

    I have tried disabling the smartd but still no luck.

    Someone here has posted related errors: http://www.linux-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/2586-are-my-hard-drives-dying/page__view__findpost__p__10024

    Is there anything like "Hard Drive SMART Enabled" options for hyper-v VM?
