I've got a problem with one AlphaServer DS10 station. When trying to reboot the station, hereis the error message :
(boot dqa0.0.0.13.0 -file vmunix -flags a)
block 0 of dqa0.0.0.13.0 is a valid boot block
reading 19 blocks from dqa0.0.0.13.0
failed to send Read to dqa0.0.0.13.0
failed to read dqa0.0.0.13.0
I tried to restore it from an old backup, but the restore stops saying that :
Hard Error Detected
Hardware ID = 46
Maxtor 6E040L0 NAR6
Active CCB at time of error
CCB request completed with an error
Error, exception, or abnormal condition
MEDIUM ERROR - Nonrecoverable medium error
(more details are in attachments).
It seems a Hw pb. but what exactly ?

Bad CD-ROM drive? Bad hard disk drive?
> [...] old backup [...]
Not much of a description of anything.
> MEDIUM ERROR - Nonrecoverable medium error
Bad disk/tape device/medium?
> Maxtor 6E040L0 [...]
Possibly that one?
> AlphaServer DS10 617 MHz [...]
All that money and no SCSI disk?

> station is damaged and should be replaced ?
Yes. The message "Nonrecoverable medium error" looks pretty terminal to me.
