Robert,
 
Can you send me a copy of your boot up messages? (via dmesg)?  I don't even think I need to see a verbose version.
 
I think I know what the problem might be, and I was afraid of running into this issue.  There is no easy way to map any given 'adx' device to
correct device/unit numbers. Actually, what happened to ad[0-3]?  Your first ATA hard drive is @ ad4?  Hopefully I will be able to work out
what is going on from the log.....
 
Thanks,
Ed

Subject: [smartmontools-support]unable to check ATA devices

I am having trouble getting smartd and smartctl to see my ATA drives.

Here is the print out and my smartd.conf

All of the ATA drives are: 117800MB <IC35L120AVVA07-0> [239340/16/63] at atax-x UDMA100
