I've had 2 issues today on a single machine - controller going readonly 
with the assumption that a disk had failed, looking at the cli stats and 
it actually showed all 6 disks in the dl380 G4 to be fine.

I accept these are not new machines, and have a few years under their 
belt - but we've got similar aged kit from other places which doesnt 
have nearly as many issues.
