Thanks much for this info. I'm pleased to report that idacontrol thinks
the logical array is in good shape. (This is on an identical server; I
moved both disks from a RAID1 array there after the first server started
reporting write and read errors.)

Yes. I've heard it said that "SMART isn't."
This Proliant DL320 server uses a SmartArray controller and SCSI disks.
SMART or not, is there a way of monitoring the health of the physical
disks from within FreeBSD?
