Ticket 21 http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/smartmontools/ticket/21 "
not able to pull stats from drives attached to areca 1680
controllers" is marked as fixed and closed. Fantastic!
The catch: r3556 notes the new feature requires firmware "1.51 or a
recent beta version".
Areca's firmware site http://www.areca.us/support/main.htm lists the
last firmware for 1680 as 149 from 2010-12-02, which is more recent
than the latest beta
The new firmware is released only for the 18xx series.
So the ticket should not be closed. We still don't have a
smartmontool solution for 1680 after all these years!
Or am I missing something?
