Description KELEMEN Péter 2003-08-29 09:19:27 EDT
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 09:32:54 EDT
Since this is an enterprise request, changing component to the enterprise linux beta
Comment 2 Bruce Allen 2003-09-05 09:12:56 EDT
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
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-10-09 05:18:31 EDT
this came in too late to bump the driver and redo QA...
Comment 4 Bruce Allen 2003-10-09 11:14:15 EDT
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.
