If the first drive could be accessed via /dev/csmi0,0 then you could use
/dev/csmi0,[1-5] ... for the other SATA ports.

This error message typically appears if smartctl is run from a console
without admin rights.

Your 2nd drive is not necessary connected to the port with the internal
number 1 (labeling on MB may differ). Please try the other port numbers
2-5 or run "smartctl --scan".
