I'm relatively new to AS/400 System admin and now faced with a failed disk on my system(9406 - 520) V5R4M5.   When working with disk status (WRKDSKSTS) F11, the display screen appear as:                                                      --Protection--                Unit  ASP  Type  Status    Compression      1    1  DPY   UNPROT                     2    1  DPY   UNPROT                     3    1  DPY   UNPROT                     4    1  DPY   FAILED   Working with SST also display error on this disk. Technical support is provided by our external service provided. Any technical advice will really help. Thanks JS

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What’s that American saying?

Run, don’t walk, to your support provider. That’s why you pay for maintenance.

    An answer depends on what support contracts that you have. If you have support for your hardware, place a support call to have the disk replaced. If you don't then search for a replacement drive on the internet, order two of them (to have a spare) and replace the drive. A bunch of possible directions can be gone along. Since WRKDSKSTS is working, you have some likely time to act; but don't wait. Tom
