Just 1 short month later...

We have an assortment of 6607 models 072, 074, and a single 070 on both of
our 2 model 640s.

One has 85 disks, the other has 120 disks.

Since they were installed (Nov-Dec '97) we have replaced about 4-5 drives
between the 2 machines.  Most of them happened in the first month or so;
things have 'quieted down' since then (at least 3-4 months of no problems).


We didn't lose any uptime or data due to these problems; the RAID did
protect us.
