This is some seriously cool stuff, but I've run into one issue. It isn't exactly a critical bug, but it was rather confusing. My disk setup is as follows: ad0: 57241MB <WDC WD600BB-00CAA0> [116301/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA100 acd0: CDRW <PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012A> at ata0-slave UDMA33 ad1: 57241MB <ST360021A> [116301/16/63] at ata1-slave UDMA100 ad2: 58644MB <IC35L060AVER07-0> [119150/16/63] at ata2-master UDMA100 However, when I use smartctl on /dev/ad1, it is trying to do stuff to acd0: edgemaster# ./smartctl -i /dev/ad1 === START OF INFORMATION SECTION === Device Model: PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012A Serial Number: 724212 Firmware Version: 1.01 SMART is only available in ATA Version 3 Revision 3 or greater. SMART support is: Unavailable - Packet Interface Devices [this device: CD/DVD] don't support ATA SMART Similarly, attempts to use smartctl against /dev/ad2 fail as if there was no such a disk. I can reach my ad1 and ad2 disks by using /dev/ad3 and /dev/ad4 with smartctl. So, you appear to have a problem getting the right drive from the device name. Otherwise, this stuff is cool.
