  1. Device hardware error: No defect spare location available (asc=0x32, asq=0x0) (FRU=0x4)

    Could anybody help me to sort the following problem in my Octane 2
    machine: it started to generate the following message frequently, I
    think its the hard drive, is it possible to restore the drive??:

    The disk is dead. There are no more spare blocks available to re-allocate
    defect blocks.

    If you run fx -x (expert mode) then you could tell it to
    reformat the disk. It *might* be able to grow the defect list,
    but it also might have already hit the hard limit for that kind
    of drive (I've seen some SCSI drives able to grow the list, some not.)

    Reformatting the disk will erase all information on it, so you'd
    want to backup everything first. And if it does decide the defect
    list is full, it might refuse to finish reformatting the disk
    leaving it useless instead of just dangerously unstable.

    When you get enough bad blocks to fill up the defect list,
    it is usually time to throw away the disk. However, sometimes
    the problem can be caused by a bad cable or by overheating or
    by bad termination (though that normally leads to timeouts, not
    defects.)

    I have another hard drive on the same machine, I wonder if it is
    possible to install the operating system (IRIX 6.5) from the corrupt
    derive to the other valid hard disc, and how can I make my second
    derive the primary one such that I can boot from it. The corrupt
    derive is still functioning uuntil now (not for long!).
    Please help
