Yes, smartd.cpp of 5.38 included a first attempt to detect SAT devices behind SCSI. paths can't be monitored by smartmontools, because libata lacks the needed ATA pass-through commands. So if that is the approach, the docs will need updating. #9 Updated by Cyber Jock almost 2 years ago Just had this problem with a TrueNAS user using 126.96.36.199.

Usually smartd works fine on IDE drives which will be /dev/hd**. smartd startup failed This seems to me to be related to the SCSI vs IDE issue ... Device: /dev/sda, Bad IEC (SMART) mode page, err=-5, skip device Unable to register SCSI device /dev/sda at line 30 of file /etc/smartd.conf Unable to register device /dev/sda (no Directive -d removable). VMware's virtual disk do not support SMART as they are not physical devices and thus cannot fail.
Think about it : - a fresh, normal install of Fedora Core 1 - one service always fails during startup It is the same as if the wrong driver for the It only takes one problem drive to mess up smartd starting. If so then disable the smartd because the drive is virtual drive fc5 is running in is seen as scsi mode type. http://mixtecadigital.com/unable-to/unable-to-remove-zone-from-the-bind-configuration-named-conf.html I enabled smart in the GUI and all the drives reported they had SMART enabled.

Re: smartd fail When run Redhat Ent. 4 on GSX 3.2 KevinG Oct 17, 2005 6:02 PM (in response to Andy Winskill) smartd is the SMART Disk Monitoring Daemon.

If the IDE driver doesn't support your particular SATA controller, or the controller doesn't have a legacy interface, then only libata can be used. Typically, to force an SATA disk to run using the standard (non-libata) drivers, you must use the BIOS to select "legacy mode" for the controller.
