AFAIK, no one’s responded to me about whether I should just turn off smartd.

At any rate, here’s more info: this server only started spitting

Apr 25 07:47:50 kernel: sda: Current [descriptor]: sense key: Recovered Errror
Apr 25 07:47:50 kernel: Add. Sense: ATA pass through information availl able
Apr 25 07:47:50 kernel:
Apr 25 07:47:50 kernel: Descriptor sense data with sense descriptors (in hhex):
Apr 25 07:47:50 kernel: 72 01 00 1d 00 00 00 0e 09 0c 00 00 00 00 00 00
Apr 25 07:47:50 kernel: 00 4f 00 c2 40 50

for every drive – and it has four – right after updated to the most current kernel
2.6.18-308.4.1.el5 #1 SMP and rebooted.

So one question becomes three:
a) should I turn off smartd?
b) should I reboot to the previous kernel, and see if it keeps up?
c) is this a known bug?
