    I have a few customers that have been getting smart errors recently. I was wondering if anyone knew what these error refer to and if the drives should actually be replaced.

    System #1

    From Command: /usr/sbin/smartctl -q errorsonly -H -l selftest -l error /dev/hda
    ATA Error Count: 2
    Error 2 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 7677 hours Error 1 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 7677 hours
    ----END /dev/hda--
