Description of problem:
Recent versions of smartmontools support S.M.A.R.T. queries to IDE devices
behind 3ware controllers. It would be very nice in enterprise environments
to have such version shipped with RedHat.
Since this is an enterprise request, changing component to the enterprise linux beta
Redhat: Don't forget that to fully support smartmontools on3ware controllers you
need to either:
- use version 1.02.00.037 or greater of the 3w-xxxx driver, or
- patch earlier 3ware 3w-xxxx drivers
Patch is here: http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/3w-xxxx.txt
this came in too late to bump the driver and redo QA...
FYI the patch has been submitted as 3ware driver update for 2.6.0-test5-bk11.
See URL below. Adam tells me that it will make it into the 2.4 kernel tree very
