cool, did not know about that. trouble server:
root at moogle:/# virt-what
root at mooglian:/# virt-what
> I have a suspicion you are ontop of Openstack (which uses CEPH), so I guess you can try to get more info.
> For example, an Openstack instance can have '0x1af4' in '/sys/block/vdX/device/vendor' (replace X with actual device letter).

This command returns no output on the bad server. Good server returns:
root at mooglian:/# /usr/lib/udev/scsi_id -g -u -d /dev/vda
-bash: /usr/lib/udev/scsi_id: No such file or directory
> And also, you can try to take a look with smartctl from smartmontools package:
> smartctl -a /dev/vdX
Both servers return:
/dev/vda: Unable to detect device type
When I asked them about this earlier this week I was told the two
servers are identical, but I guess there is something different about
the server giving me trouble. I will go back to them and see what they
have to say. Thanks for pointing me at this...
