Bruce, Sf and other developers/users of Smartmontools, could you please have a look at this error message and help me to get it working. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

First, Thank you very much for the smartmontools team to support
HighPoint RAID controller!!

I want to know which kind of HighPoint RAID controller
does smartmontools 5.37 support?

I have RocketRAID 1640 card. It has a hpt374 controller.
I tried to get S.M.A.R.T. info from the two SATA disks behind the card.
But unfortunately I could not. Whats' wrong??

# smartctl -a -d hpt,1/1 /dev/sda
smartctl version 5.37 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-6 Bruce Allen
Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/

Smartctl: Device Read Identity Failed (not an ATA/ATAPI device)

belows are the RAID information hpt374 linux opensource driver shows.

# cat /proc/scsi/hpt374/0
RocketRAID 154x/1640 SATA Controller driver Version 2.16

Physical device list
Controller/Bus/ID  Model                Capacity  Status   Array
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 Channel 1        HTS541040G9SA00       38154MB  Normal   RAID_0_1
1 Channel 3        HTS541040G9SA00       38154MB  Normal   RAID_0_1

Logical device list
No. sd         Type         Name                 Capacity  Status
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1  /dev/sda   RAID 0       RAID_0_1              76308MB  Normal


This disk supports S.M.A.R.T.
http://www.hitachigst.com/tech/techlib.nsf/products/Travelstar_5K100

And there's a entry in smartmontools database.
(from knowndrives.cpp)

  { "Hitachi Travelstar 5K100 series",
    "^HTS5410[1864]0G9(AT|SA)00$",
    ".*",
    NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL
  },


Thanks,
