I've never used smartd, but smartctl is working fine with my sata drive.
I'm having a hard time understanding what im supposed to put in the config
file to use smartd. Please let me know if you need any other info.
The error I'm receiving is
Enabling S.M.A.R.T. for: /dev/sdaunable to fetch IEC (SMART) mode page
