Failing hard drive?



Hi

I was playing around with smartctl on my server and found some
worrying entries in the logs:

[root localhost root]# smartctl -l selftest /dev/hda
smartctl version 5.21 Copyright (C) 2002-3 Bruce Allen

The drive is unable to complete any selftests, smartctl -c says that
the drive supports both short and extended selftests (but not
conveyance so that error is ok). The drive in question is a Seagate
Barracuda ATA IV (ST340016A), and has been in use for 5311 hours
according to smartctl.

I checked that SMART is turned on in the BIOS, the power cable is
firmly connected, SMART is enabled for the drive and I changed the IDE
cable. Still can't run any selftests. Supprisingly smartctl -H shows
that the drive thinks it's still ok.

Has anybody had "electrical failures" on a drive? Did the drive fail? 


Thanks,
Rasmus
