Hmm, and you are sure that both disksets are OK and don't have any bad
sectors? What filesystems are you using?
I made a mistake when I said the new filesystem is ext4; it's actually
xfs. The old server is reiserfs but I don't think there's any problem on
There definitely seems to be some kind of problem on the new machine,
most likely associated with a drive or motherboard port.

I don't see any alternative to rebooting but I thought I'd
ask first to see if anybody had any other ideas on ways to gather
Difficult if you cannot access it anymore. I'm normally logging to a remote
machine so I can always see syslog output.
That's a good idea. I'll set that up before I run my next experiment.
Thanks. At the moment suse is on another partition on the drive that
fails. I might move suse to a different drive to separate things.
I did reboot and found the same symptoms as before - one specific drive
not responding. After a powercycle, it's OK again. I've swapped it with
the drive next to it to see whether the problem follows the drive or
stays with the bay/controller port.
At the moment it's still rebuilding the RAID.
Ah, there it goes. Hmm, running out of resources? If
the new disks are still
flashing they are still writing, so the buffer might be over-full and
everything else is swapped out?
Hmm, I'll be sure watch the resource usage more carefully when I restart
the transfer. Thanks again.
Could of course also be a network card problem....
Maybe, but I don't see how that could produce the temporarily failed
Out of ideas now
Thanks for the ones you did have!
