Thanks for the information, Yuji. Let's hope that RR1640 controllers will also be supported by smartmontools in the near future.

Hi Deepak,

See following messages that I received from HighPoint Linux Team.

--------
Currently, HighPoint RR18xx/RR2xxx adapters are able to work with
smartmontools. The RR1640 driver hasn't implemented the ioctl interface
used by smartmontools.

This is not sent to the mailing list yet...
I post this mail for the smartmontools users who meet the same problem.


Cheers,

Hi all,

I am also getting the very same error message when I try to check the smart
status of the HDs connected behind HPT controller. Please go through the
following:

---------------------------
Controller and HD details:

RocketRAID 154x/1640 SATA Controller driver Version 2.12

Physical device list
Controller/Bus/ID  Model                Capacity  Status   Array
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 Channel 1        ST3120026AS           114473MB  Normal   RAID_1_0
1 Channel 2        ST3120026AS           114473MB  Normal   RAID_1_0

Logical device list
No. sd         Type         Name                 Capacity  Status
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1  /dev/sda   RAID 1       RAID_1_0              114473MB  Normal

--------------------------

Smartctl output:

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)

A mandatory SMART command failed: exiting. To continue, add one or more '-T
permissive' options.

-----------------------------

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!
