Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187181
smartd-conf.py does not support sata
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
Description of problem:
The config file created by /usr/sbin/smartd-conf.py is pata only.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on a machine with SATA
Also, smartctl outputs:
SATA disks accessed via libata are not currently supported by
smartmontools. When libata is given an ATA pass-thru ioctl() then an
additional '-d libata' device type will be added to smartmontools.
But the command should be '-d ata'
Even better though would be auto-detect.
