SANtricity commands

Show storage array unreadable sectors


The show storageArray unreadableSectors command returns a table of the addresses of all of the sectors in the storage array that cannot be read.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600 and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin or Storage Monitor role.


The returned table is organized with column headings for the following information:

  • Volume user label

  • Logical unit number (LUN)

  • Accessible by (host or host group)

  • Date/time

  • Volume-relative logical block address (hexadecimal format — 0xnnnnnnnn)

  • Drive location (tray t, slot s)

  • Drive-relative logical block address (hexadecimal format — 0xnnnnnnnn)

  • Failure type

The data is sorted first by the volume user label and second by the logical block address (LBA). Each entry in the table corresponds to a single sector.
