    Hi

    the main drive on my dedicated server is spiking a lot
    so I ran
    /usr/sbin/smartctl -q errorsonly -H -l selftest -l error /dev/sda5
    and the server responded
    Standard Inquiry (36 bytes) failed [Inappropriate ioctl for device]
    Retrying with a 64 byte Standard Inquiry
    Standard Inquiry (64 bytes) failed [Inappropriate ioctl for device]

    Here is the server information
    Linux 2.6.18-308.20.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Nov 13 10:15:12 EST 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    What command should I use to check the health of the drive?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Audrey

    Hello :)

    You may want to try checking the following log files for any indication of a drive failure:

    /var/log/messages
    /var/log/dmesg

    Thank you.
