Bruce,
 
I wanted to give you some feedback about running smartmontools on my Solaris 2.6 box.  "smard" displays the following error on startup in /var/adm/messages:
 
Apr 10 11:54:09 wpt17 unix: WARNING: /pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/sd@0,0 (sd0):
Apr 10 11:54:09 wpt17 unix:     SCSI transport failed: reason 'unexpected_bus_free': giving up
Apr 10 11:54:09 wpt17 unix:

It shows it's running, so I don't know if there is anything else I should try:
 
# ps -ef |grep smartd
    root 13416     1  0 12:10:09 ?        0:00 /usr/sbin/smartd -p /var/run/smartd.pid
 
Thank you,
