MySQL Could not chdir to home directory : I/O error

When I login to Solaris 8 server I am getting the below error message

Code:
Could not chdir to home directory /users/test: I/O error

: ls /users/test
/users/test: I/O error
exitcode: 2

Previously I am able to login to server without any issue. Only now I am facing this error.

Kalai

There's your error:
Code:
c1t4d0          Soft Errors: 0 Hard Errors: 2023 Transport Errors: 0

2023 Hard errors, 2023 Device Not Ready errors, and a reported size that's impossible. I'd say that disk is going to hardware heaven.
