I have a system that is logging:
smartd /dev/sda currently unreadble (pending) sectors
smartd /dev/sda offline uncorrectable sectors

The box continues to run fine.

Doing "smartctl -H /dev/sda" says:
test result: PASSED

I have ran the "smartctl -t offline /dev/sda", after the 300+ seconds I 
and waited about 30 minutes and again got the above error, and smartctl 
-H says PASSED.

How do I tell smartctl to just not use the sectors its finding bad and 
move on?
