Hi,

I ran SMART on one of our Solaris blades and got the following output.

I ran a extended self test
./smartctl -t long /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0

and when i checked back after 37 minutes to look at the results i saw warning messages.

I need some help understanding the section highlighted in RED. Does this indicate iminent failure?

Thanks in advance,
Sriram
