Description KELEMEN Péter 2003-08-29 13:19:27 UTC
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.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-08-29 13:32:54 UTC
Since this is an enterprise request, changing component to the enterprise linux beta

Comment 2 Bruce Allen 2003-09-05 13:12:56 UTC
Redhat: Don't forget that to fully support smartmontools on3ware controllers you
need to either:
  - use version or greater of the 3w-xxxx driver, or
  - patch earlier 3ware 3w-xxxx drivers
Patch is here: http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/3w-xxxx.txt

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-10-09 09:18:31 UTC
this came in too late to bump the driver and redo QA...

Comment 4 Bruce Allen 2003-10-09 15:14:15 UTC
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
soon now.
