Hello,
I have a new cPanel server, which does not have any use. It’s installed on Friday and last night I got this message.

Subject: FailedReadSmartData
Message: Device: /dev/sda [SAT], failed to read SMART Attribute Data

the question is, should I be worried?

Hello :)

I suggest contacting your data center/hosting provider or a qualified system administrator if you are not comfortable investigating potential hard drive errors.

Thank you.
