one week ago , i sent a mail regarding some error messages excerpt from
messages file.
Now, there is one response from rashmi, here it is :

but it was only a WARNing message about media errors, so I don't know
how serious this WARNING is . and I also want to know the relationship
between these all messages and rebooting of the server. Can anyone
tell me what's on earth the meaning of these error messages ?

any help will be greatly appreciated

my original question:
Today, a customer of us report several system reboot.
from the /var/adm/messages file, I excerpt the following error messages:

08:50:16 www unix: WARNING: /sbus@3,0/SUNW,fas@3,8800000/sd@0,0 (sd0):
