    Hi,
    Does anyone know why the console keeps showing this error?

    I was wondering what caused this error and how this can be corrected.

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you configure a host name. Look under network/global configuration/host name in the web GUI.

    Yes, I've configured it a hostname.
    Please check out the screen shot and I've got all these errors which I don't know how to fix it, anyone could help?
    Thank you!

    It's trying to resolve DNS entries for external sites.

    Ensure that you configured a default gateway address as well as DNS server entries.

    Based on the screen shot above, can anyone tell me why it failed on SMART for my /dev/ada1 and the unreadable error?
    Thanks,

    You've got a failing drive. It even says backup your stuff now

    Thanks for your prompt reply, although that was the last thing I was to hear; if that is the case, i guess I have to replace it with a new one then.

    Thanks again!

    Even if you have the ability to RMA the current one, if you don't have a spare on hand, I'd buy one locally and replace the bad one ASAP.
