The datacenter reports that the disk is only warm to the touch.
Is there a possibility that the SATA disk is returning different
raw values? I had to specify "-d ata" to get smartctl to work.
Without this option, I get
[jhg@helios ~]$ sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda
smartctl version 5.33 [x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-4
Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/
Device: ATA WDC WD1600JS-55M Version: 10.0
SATA disks accessed via libata are not currently supported by
smartmontools. When libata is given an ATA pass-thru ioctl() then an
additional '-d libata' device type will be added to smartmontools.

Betreff: [smartmontools-support] WDC WD1600JS unknown attribute 190 question
I did a google search and found some postings that indicate attributes
194 both indicate the current temperature in degrees celsius. Is this
for WD SATA drives? I recently leased a dedicated server at cari.net and
get the following when running smartctl. Everything looks normal except
190 and 194. If they're really temperature, then there's a serious
problem with cooling. I want to be sure this is true before I submit a
support request to them.
Yes, Attribute 190 in WD drives seems to be temperature with a
threshold at 55 degrees, Bruce made some comments about this recently.
And yes, you have a problem. See the "FAILING_NOW" message, which
means that WD considers this as "no good".
