          Hi
          when a soft error is detected, the data residing on the affected block(s) will be moved to another block, then the 'bad' block is either repaired, or mapped out as a flawed sector. My own experience is that soft errors are often the harbinger of hard erros, and you are as well to do the necessary disk swap sooner rather than later.

          Regards

              Check out prtdiag -v for your current working memory modules

              on SC or RSC prompt check showfaults -v command to check for faulty components
